Design Sprints

From inspiration to tangible prototype, validated with customers all in just 5 days or less.

From inspiration to tangible prototype, validated with customers. This process typically takes 5 days. Design Sprints originated at Google Ventures, and they help to solve big challenges and problems.

Since then, the methodology has been accepted by hundreds of successful brands across the globe. This process allows us to test and learn and improve customer experiences quickly. Ideas are validated with users immediately, which in turn can save considerable investment and reduce uncertainty when launching new ideas or experiences.

Design Sprints can help to bring cross-functional departments together too. So, if you’re working in a silo, our facilitators can help align across departments and make sure everyone is focused on the end-user. Although this is usually a 5-day process, at Graphite, we are able to adapt the process to fit with client timetables.

Design Sprints

  • Timing

    A Design Sprint is 5 days as standard. We can also adapt the Design Sprint process to work with client schedules and offer a 3 day lean sprint as well as a 2 week adaptation.

  • Deliverables

    A document that summarises all of the design sprint exercises and findings. This can assist in internal stakeholder conversations should this be required. The report will include evidence-based recommendations and can be used to justify further investment in digital innovation.

    By the end of a design sprint, you will have created a tangible, clickable, high-resolution prototype that can be used to validate your ideas with real users. From this, you can gain valuable insights that can help you optimise and build upon your prototype.
