They connect us, inspire us, change the world around us...
...and a great idea can come from anywhere. This is the founding principle of Clusta.
Clusta is a new platform to collaboratively brainstorm
We took the concept of the mind map, added some mycelial
and created an entirely new and unique
interface design to let your next idea take shape.
Clusta is made up of collections. Like making a mind map for a particular project, collections are your
one stop shop for all brainstorming, research and planning for your new project.
Collections are made up of sparks. These are small cards of text which you can connect together to form
a web, a mesh... a cluster.
It is the cluster of these sparks which make up the shape
of an idea.

Because we know a good idea can come from anywhere, we wanted to make sure that Clusta would feel like
an inclusive space for all collaborators. This is why we focused less on profiles and more on ideas
This allows ideas to be judged on their value, not their author.
It also ensures that Clusta is a space for connection, not separation. Our ideas, our dreams, are what
connect us. This is why we made Clusta.
This belief in connection and inclusivity is what inspired the architecture of our platform.
Instead of building a structure of information in the same, arboreal image (tree-like) as we see in most
structures of information, physical and digital (like your desktop file system - folders in folders,
files in these, like branches from a tree) we were inspired by mycelial and mycorrhizal root systems
which form circular pathways with multiple connection points.
This new image of organisation removes hierarchy from
Only when we see ideas together,
connected, and equal, can we judge them for what they are.
For the first time we can do this. Only on Clusta.
If you read this far, thanks so much! I hope Clusta will help your next idea take shape.
