Creativity and innovation are much sought-after qualities of indi- viduals and organizations, but existing creativity practises are not cohesively integrated with digital workflows or digital artefacts. We introduce a set of design considerations for digital systems to support creative processes, specifically supporting the three ongo- ing, iterative activities of creative processes: gathering inspiration, generating ideas, and refining ideas. We present Idea Playground, a system built upon these considerations that supports diverse input sources, synchronous and asynchronous use, and freeform information structuring.
