These are the tools that we use regularly across Human Made and that you need to have for your day-to-day work. Individual teams may have other tools that they use and which you’ll need to get familiar with.

For a broader discussion of tools used by humans, you can read this post on 🔒 Updates.

Shared Files

Project Management

Document Collaboration

  • Google Docs Please default to using Google Docs and Drive. NOT DROPBOX
  • Dropbox Paper Occasionally used for a few teams. Do not default to Dropbox.






  • Sketch – If you need, or already have, a Sketch license please ping Daisy in Slack to let her know so she can add it to the HM Sketch team because it’s more cost effective than paying for an individual one.
  • Cardybot – This is for sending birthday cards to each other; everyone in #general is automatically opted in so if you don’t want to participate, please let Daisy know and she will ask Cardybot to delete your Slack username from their list. (N.B. Cardybot messages don’t currently support markdown formatting but will soon, Daisy will update here when it’s rolled out)
