Design Sprints

From idea to user tested prototype in just 4 days

But what is a design sprint? Originally, the Google team developed this method but from our HQ in Northern Ireland we’ve been using it to the benefit of our clients throughout the UK & Ireland. A design sprint takes an idea, a group of people and in a short period of time with a step-by-step framework drives the idea through to a valid prototype that gets tested with real users.

What is a Design Sprint?

Our design sprints help businesses throughout the UK & Ireland quickly solve big problems, create new products and improve existing ones by using a customer-focused, design thinking framework. It’s a step-by-step process, defined by Google, used to define and test a new product or a unique challenge. It brings together people from across an organisation to rapidly work through the product design sprint process in only a few days.
