The UX Sprint

Over the past years, we have optimized our work processes in various UX projects. During that time, we got inspired by agile methods and design sprints. We consolidated our learnings in what we call the »UX Sprint«.

Tons of features in two weeks.

Each sprint is divided between a week of co‑creation and user testing and a second week of elaboration.

Week 1
Co-creation, prototyping
& user testing

In the first week, we prioritize features to work on, discuss and vote for solutions, create interactive prototypes and get feedback from real customers.

Week 2
Rework, refinement
& shipping

In the second week, we implement the customer feedback and refine the prototype to rock-solid UI designs and developer blueprints.

Output is shipped biweekly.

Layouts & prototypes

We ship clickable high-fidelity prototypes. They offer the perfect way to run user testing or deliver a more complete pitch for your idea and each one contains the layouts needed to start development.

User stories

We base our planning and scoping on a jointly-created user story map. Use it in your JIRA, Notion, etc. Less work on your side.

Tested & validated

Did you know: Asking five users offers the perfect benefit-cost ratio for user testing. User testing is an integral part of our design process.

But first
Why run a UX sprint?

The days of gigantic project planning and estimations that quickly run out of scope are over. The truth: Most challenges only rear their head after the work has begun.
Sprint-based project planning enables us to quickly update scope according to the insights we gather anlong the way.

Thus, UX sprints are fast and flexible. Design an MVP in 2 to 3 weeks, run design inline with development and output rock-solid designs and blueprints.

Too early?

Sometimes it makes sense to figuring out possible ideas and test them before starting a whole project. We run design sprints for that purpose.

The long-term perspective
How to reach product excellence?

5 The little Oohs Delivering the little »Oohs« and »Ahhhs« is an important part of delivering the kind of experience your customers will remember you for. It’s the cherry on the cake.
4 Branded product Having a well-designed product is one thing. Integrating your brand values into your product is another layer of design.
3 Well-designed user interface As designers we love a well-executed creation. But the value of good design reaches even further - it increases user engagement and develops trust in your brand.
2 Extended functionality To grow your user base, it is crucial to provide a complete set of meaningful functions, combine them seamlessly and offer them on multiple platforms and devices.
1 Tested prototype It all starts with an idea. But is it the right one? We design and test prototypes to create a product that fits your customer’s needs.

Let’s look at a case.

A crypto currency dashboard for Maker DAO

In an unsteady market, Maker DAO envisioned a way to create stable crypto coins. We supported their efforts, making the solution understandable, functional and fun for their users.
