We help companies, startups and non-profits build relevant digital products and solve business problems. We do this faster and more effectively than anyone else by using Design Sprints.
This is a process which centres around a five-day workshop where we work with you on in order to answer critical business questions through design, prototyping, and testing ideas with your customers.
Squarball brings 15 years of digital experience together with a passion for leading and hyper effective processes to offer a modern and proven method for taking your product to the next level.
Before the sprint itself, our team will collaborate with you to collate, organize and distribute existing research. We'll also scrutinise the knowledge gained so far to make sure there is a problem worth solving in the Design Sprint.
The team shares their points of view on the problem at hand and reviews the Design Sprint Brief (which is confirmed during Sprint Research above). We analyze the available analytics, define personas, create customer journey maps, benchmark the competition and the existing app (if any).
Each participant individually sketches their own interpretation of the future product. This avoids plain brainstorming and brings more interesting solutions to the table.
Sketches are (anonymously) reviewed and analysed for strengths and weaknesses. We'll vote on the best idea then develop it further as a storyboard.
The input and decisions so far will be consolidated into a prototype. This is where our designers will make what is sometimes a blurry concept look tangible and testable. We will handle most of the creation on your behalf, as long as we have availability from at least the project manager/owner throughout the day.
Five neutral users will be invited to test the clickable prototype we have built the day before. The users are based on the different target audiences (personas) that we have defined on the first day. Sessions are recorded and we often use Lookback.io to capture the interview and voiceover.
The ideal number of people involved in the sprint is 4-7 people and they include;
