A Design Sprint is a proven, scientific process of collaborative brainstorming that helps assess which features to build first and which ones to eliminate. It helps save development time and money by solidifying concepts and building the groundwork for wireframing and designing.
With Design Sprint you can quickly prototype and test with real users. With a prototype, you can get feedback from your audience even before building anything. This helps you mitigate risk and take the right decisions in terms of feature prioritization and user flow.
At Mindbowser, Design Sprint is part of a complete idea transformation process that helps you conceptualize your idea and create a blueprint that the development team can follow. While we use the Design Sprint best practices, we do not stop at just providing recommendations. Our Design Sprint lead to a complete mockup version of your idea that can then act as a blueprint that the development team can follow.
Similar to when you want to build a house, you cannot just bring in construction workers and ask them to start laying down the bricks, an idea cannot just have developers come in and start building.
A project requires a plan. A precise blueprint that can act as a bible for everyone to follow. Mindbowser Design Sprint help you achieve that blueprint.
With the evolution of technology and the expectations of end users, companies today need to build products that match user expectations. It is really important to decipher user needs and include it in your decision making. While on the one hand the product needs to be simple to use, on the other hand the product should have enough features packed together so that the user does not fall short of any features.
This has led to the importance of user engineering and user experience. A Design Sprint brings your complete product planning around end users and gives opportunities to understand your user feedback and take it into consideration while building it.

A New Jersey based fitness expert approached Mindbowser to develop a virtual fitness training application. It was to be built for remote gym and fitness consulting sessions for existing gym members and start expanding from there for the rest of the world.
Mindbowser shared the Design Sprint development approach and got the stage set up for the product plan.
Post Design Sprint, you end up with a click-through prototype. You take this prototype and test with real users. Then we assess any gaps in user experience from the feedback received. Once wireframes are ready after revision they go for development and a development plan is created.
