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.

"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 end product speaks for itself. It's beautiful, it's easy to use, and it's made my life a lot easier. And that right there is reason enough to work with Planet Argon when they can deliver a product that is sleek and easy to use."

"[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."

"The Oregonian and Planet Argon really are in the business of understanding people's needs for information, and how to provide it and anticipating how people want to work with information. I think Planet Argon is very effective at that."
