Design sprints

In the second phase we divided our time into "sprints". We based it on Google Ventures' design sprint, a 5 day process where you answer critical questions through designing, prototyping and testing ideas with customers. We repeated the prototype and testing stage of the process, extending the sprint to 10 days. Because the prioritised areas were so broad, this allowed us to look into many different variations. 

 
 
 

At the end of the sprint everyone in the test group could leave anonymous feedback. This feedback helped us decide what to focus on in the following design sprint.

 
 
 

Each sprint focused on one area on our list of priorities. Concepts we believed had the most potential were tested and refined. We created a wide range of material for these tests, from storyboards and mockups to movies and functional prototypes. At the end of the sprint everyone in the test group could leave anonymous feedback. This feedback helped us decide what to focus on in the following design sprint.
