Design Sprint is a collaboration framework that can help you tackle problems you thought would take months or years to solve.
A Design Sprint is an intensive design-thinking workshop to kick off a bigger project. It can truly change the perspective, it boosts creativity by forcing alignment between all stakeholders and it significantly reduces risks. If your problems are complex, broad, difficult and they’re critical to the success of your company – we can’t recommend Design Sprints more since it creates space for ideation.
Design Sprint can truly change your perspective. By “building a facade”, or a working prototype, a Design Sprint team can quickly gather insights from their users, validate the approach, and later pursue the product build with the collective confidence that it’s the right direction before investing time, energy, and capital into a polished final product.
The sprint is short, agile and speeds up the software development process. Once it’s over, you are given an action plan with project milestones, cost and time estimate, as well as wireframes. Design Sprint findings are miles away from a quick quote given by some software development houses. It provides you and your vendor with a clear plan of action and deadlines.
Obviously, it’s not a solution for everyone, but thanks to its rapidity, it’s a perfect methodology for startups as well as large organizations, which are often slowed down by complex processes. At the same time, Design Sprint gives you extra time for improvements or changes without spending all of your budget on an app that isn’t likely to work.
Gather existing knowledge, expose assumptions and unknowns using Design Sprint workshop.
You might find different types of Design Sprints, as the whole concept got extremely popular over the years. At United Ideas we came up with our own process to develop a working prototype, get feedback from users, build a plan for next steps and understand the full potential of a project.
During our workshops people are encouraged to think outside the box and so you can be sure that a design sprint will help your dev house of choice to find the best solutions, optimize the development process and maybe improve your original idea.
The sprint enforces team members to be organized, effective and be on the lookout for improvements. A group brainstorming session at a start is way more effective than asking your new team to do analysis separately. Moreover, it will eradicate misunderstandings and numerous email to your vendor.

We already helped a lot of projects take advantage of design sprint framework.
More than 90% of our projects starts from referrals by satisfied clients.
Our validated MVP needed intensive improvements to its UX and design. We decided to use React.js and they started work before we even signed the papers. We became members of the team from the beginning, sharing their chats, work, and task management tools. We recently decided to hire United Ideas as a software development provider for another project; we look forward to working with them again.
United Ideas built our web app using Ruby on Rails. We needed a technology provider to develop our idea into a web platform. The design was one of our main requirements. Their ability to deliver sprints stands out. We received the first version after a few months from initial talks and quickly saw users and revenue start coming in. I would recommend them to anyone considering a complex project.
During workshops, they helped us design and build a user-friendly application for iOS and Android. Then, using our brief, they put together a proposal. There was a lot missing, so they filled in the pieces and did most of the design work. They did all of the functional and development work, from getting things started to pushing the app out live.
