Workshop Facilitator Description

Please Note: Deep Work won't reply directly to messages or emails and will only respond to the Typeform responses at the bottom of this document.

Deep Work provides radically better design for technical teams and founders. Our client engagements run in Hypersprints - efficient and enjoyable combinations of workshop sessions, prototype design and user testing.

Deep Work is self-funded. We're two founders, previously freelancers, who built Deep Work from scratch with our own resources and work. We're eager to grow and work with a network of design freelancers and workshop facilitators, always making sure we can all influence the direction of Deep Work together.

Preparation - Hand over from a team member to understand the project and client requirements.

Three Days Collaboration Sessions - Facilitating the Hypersprint sessions for 4-hours a day (we don't work more than that to optimise productivity and getting the most out of you and our clients). This is the focus of the day and is not be fitted around other projects.

Prototype / User Testing - You hand over to the product designer to build the prototype. Who hands over to the user tester to test the users.

Final Report - You facilitate the summary session to the client, presenting the user testing results and giving clear next steps.
