Neil and Laura Westwood with Theo Paphitis (Dragon's Den)

User experience design is a visual craft, and for every project, we need the wall space for sketches, diagrams & brainstorming notes.

Some offices are fortunate to have the space to stick whatever they want on the walls. However, for many, this isn’t an option which can make running workshops and ‘stand–up’ meetings very difficult. In these circumstances, Magic Whiteboard® is a great solution, allowing you to create whiteboard-like surfaces without leaving any marks behind.

Magic Whiteboard® is an excellent product for collaboration, boosting conversations, and operating at speed (partly because you won’t be spending 10 minutes picking up post-it notes off the floor).

 

The Story behind the Magic Whiteboard®

The Magic Whiteboard® was created by NHS Worker Neil Westwood as he was fed up of carrying his flip-chart stand around the hospital wards and needed to find a portable solution. As a result, the Magic Whiteboard® was born.

Magic Whiteboards®

In 2008, Neil took his product onto the famous series Dragon’s Den where Theo Paphitis and Deborah Meaden invested £100,000 into the development of this incredible product.

Since then, the company is back in the hands of its founders, and the company is on target to turn over £1.5m this year with profits of £400,000. It’s only the second time in the history of Dragons’ Den that an investee business has repurchased their equity. That is just a representation of how great the Magic Whiteboard® is.

Highly Recommended

We would highly recommend the Magic Whiteboard® they are a great resource to have in a workplace. Let us know what you think and share your pictures; it would be great to showcase how other UXer’s are interacting with the product.
