Design Sprint

Img discovery
The design sprint is the diagnostic tool we use to collaboratively determine the problem, propose solutions, and test our hypotheses.

By reducing distractions, gathering the appropriate stakeholders, and applying a disciplined and proven analytical approach, design sprints effectively get much accomplished in little time. This approach clarifies goals, problems, and solutions for EVERYONE involved; not just a siloed creative group, separate from the clients, developers, and users.

Schedule a 30-minute to chat about a design sprint for your project.


Identify The Root Problem Together

Through targeted exercises aimed at revealing assumptions and understanding the needs and experiences of all the users involved, the group will work together on a shared understanding of the real problem, so that we have a clear direction on solutions to design.

Generate Ideas To Discuss

With a shared understanding of the problem, everyone in the group will participate in idea generation exercises, ensuring all ideas are brought to the table and discussed. Exercises get the creative juices flowing and break down the "creative barriers" to ensure no solution is left unexplored.

Test And Challenge Ideas To Find The Right Solutions

With ideas and solutions mapped out, the team can explore all of the potential ideas and determine which solutions merit consideration.

Build And Test In Days

With an idea to test, the team can work on a simple prototype to put in front of real users. This breaks down the hurdles of a normal project process and gets real ideas in front of users in days rather than months. This process reduces wasted time and resources spent going down the wrong path and yields helpful feedback early on which to iterate.

What Our Clients Say

Yusuke Ishikawa, CFO at Skoshbox

"We thought we were going to have a hard time explaining what we needed and what our problems were. They were really easy to work with, they were able to grasp all of our problems and needs really quickly. They were also very attentive. Anything we needed, they helped. "

"Planet Argon taught me everything I know about Ruby on Rails. They are our first call when we need any Ruby work done, and both built and have maintained www.contiki.com for the past two years."

"After Planet Argon came in and really patched up our holes and redid our website, it eliminated so much of the manual work and the headaches that we experienced. Not only for our customers, but also on the operations end and shipping end. That just freed up so much time for Yusuke and me to be able to focus on growth, and product, and the vision."

"[The Discovery workshop] got our staff thinking a little more like web designers, I think. In other words, we got into a mindset closer to yours as you got into a mindset closer to ours."
