Hi team, I’m [your name]I will be leading our design project. But before it starts, I just want to make sure everyone is set up and ready.[customize this section] IMPORTANT: Please send us anything that could better prepare us for the project in response to this email. User journeys, visual references, wireframes, etc.
Our design processIf you’re not familiar with the Design Sprint process (or its updated version we will be going through) - be mentally prepared that it might feel intense and unusual, so please join in well-rested and maybe have some healthy (sugarless) food around you to give you some energy in the breaks. Especially on Session 3, which will be the most intense workshop.
What to expectDuring the sprint, we will go through several exercises to find challenges of the current project, define a goal, come up with individual solutions and finally merge all solutions into one concept storyboard. The storyboard will contain the best ideas to our current knowledge and act as the basis for us to use all available technology and design skills to create a high-fidelity prototype. By the end of the sprint, you will receive all the data gathered during the Sprint, the finished prototype and a comprehensive report from the user tests.
Our Team of ExpertsOur Experts will be guiding you through the workshops and do the hard work designing the product. Each of our Experts on the sprint may also be supported by a Collaborator from our community of designers.Workshop Facilitation: [add their name]Prototype Design: [add their name]User Research: [add their name]User Tester Recruiter: [add their name]Aside from the Collaborators on our team there might be a Shadower. They will only observe how we work to learn, they will be muted, have their camera off and have agreed to not share any sensitive information from the project.Please let us know if you don’t feel comfortable with a Shadower.
PreparationGoogle Meet - We’ll use for video chat meetings (the call ID is in your calendar invite)Miro - For most of the collaborative brainstormingPlease make sure to familiarise yourself with the tools and not have any calls or meetings scheduled during the sprint sessions.It's important to stay focused and avoid distractions!On the same note - it's very important that you join the sessions on time. Joining late will mean that you need to skip a part of the linear process and will not be able to catch up, so please respect the schedule.
User TestingFinally, we will be looking for a pool of testers of around 5 people. If you know anyone you would like us to interview, feel free to send them the following link to sign up for a time slot: [add calendly here]Let me know if you have any questions, enjoy your day and see you soon!
