The UX Design Sprint

A UX Design Sprint is a two-week process shipping innovative digital products through prototyping and user testing.

Tons of features in two weeks.

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

UX Sprint
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 create clickable high-fidelity prototypes in InVision. Those are the perfect basis 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 with your team 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 a great way to run innovation and an integral part of our design process.

But first

Why run a UX design 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 design 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.

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.

Complete makeover for a record pool from NYC

Digital DJ Pool offers a music subscription for major radio and club DJs. Boana redesigned the product experience of their web and mobile apps and renewed the branding.

With our client in NYC and our studio in Berlin, remote workshops, video chats and on-point briefings were the order of the day.

Hang on.
There is also a mobile app.
