Design Sprints Design, Prototype, and test big ideas fast.

OUR APPROACH

Why should you run a design sprint:

Let’s face it, traditional design and engineering processes typically take months, sometimes years to execute or discover solutions to both simple and complex ideas. Today’s business world is moving faster than ever and companies must learn to innovate and execute quickly. With the design sprint, you can take months of work and condense it down to a couple of weeks.

WHY DESIGN SPRINTS

A design sprint is perfect for:

  • Testing and validating new products or features
  • Creating solutions for specific challenges of a user experience
  • Validating and surfacing brand and business positions
  • Getting “unstuck” when your team is stuck.
  • OUR PROCESS

    The process:

    The design sprint is a 4 day process that leaves you with a working and tested prototype at the end of the week.

    Day1

    Day2

    Day3

    Day4

    We work with experts in the industry and the leadership of the business we are working with to define challenges and begin to discover and surface solutions and goals for the sprint.

    We sketch and vote on the best solutions and create a storyboard of the prototype to define what will be designed and executed for the rest of the sprint.

    We build a realistic prototype based off of what was discovered in the first two days of the Sprint.

    We test the prototype with real users and use the results of the tests as the foundation for the next steps of the process.

    WHAT’S NEXT

    We did a design sprint! Now what?

    After the design sprint you will have a working and user tested prototype. There are many routes companies take after a sprint, here are just a few:

  • Have an iteration follow up week to refine and polish the prototype to get it ready for production.
  • Use the prototype as a jumping off point to test and launch new ideas and executions.
  • Run additional design sprints on either the same prototype or for other challenges the company is facing.
