We help build teams that innovate and deliver.

Design Workshop: Creative teams often get the short stick in Agile. Product Owners and development teams hurtle toward the finish line in rapid sprints and expect everyone, including designers, information architects, illustrators, and writers to step up to the plate and deliver in two week chunks–with no Creative Brief.

I have worked with some of the best creative folks in the world, including Creative Directors, Designers, Copy Writers, Information Architects, Illustrators, and Content Strategists for Disney, Inuit, Mirage Resorts, Sony, Louis Vuitton, Gucci, and Prada.

Over the years, I have developed an approach of integrating the creative “Blue Sky” process into the fast-paced sprint process. Creatives feel appreciated, and the dev team is assured assets will arrive on time.

 

I will work with your creative team to design a flexible process to:

  •  Integrate user testing into the sprint cadence
  • Workshop scope and rapidly prototype solutions for testing
  • Lead an ‘inception’ phase that gives creative folks the tools and time to be creative
  • Lead a simple user-focused story workshop that helps the whole team understand the user’s journey

I love great design and working with great designers. Developing a beautiful website, app, or game that precisely fits the user’s needs is the reason I do what I do.

Let me work with your creative team to understand the user, workshop the solution, develop a cadence of creative meetings that works within the Scrum framework, and put in place lightweight user testing sessions that will guide and inspire the team to deliver something great.
