What you need to know about working with a Design Sprint agency

For start-ups, Design Sprint agencies can be the difference between sink or swim. If an aspect of your business isn't performing as hoped, a Design Sprint provides insight into the problem, a new approach, and a roadmap to its successful implementation. We are experts in unlocking creativity and viable business or product ideas. Our experienced design teams will guide you through a series of workshop exercises that unlock creativity in a structured way, producing practical, actionable results. With busy schedules in mind, decision-maker participation in workshops is minimized while still achieving the desired outcomes.

Scaling Plastic Action Globally

A world-renowned NGO asked Windmill to scale its impact without increasing costs.

Windmill hosted two Design Sprints, gathering information and analyzing the pain points of policymakers to guide our designs.

In the first sprint, Windmill designed a national readiness assessment tool to identify where a country is on their plastic action journey.

In the second sprint, the team created the template of an interactive step-by-step plastic action workflow to guide a team through a year-long plastic action journey.

A bank needed a design sprint agency to help streamline their client onboarding process and bring it into the 21st Century.

We combined desk-based research with a hands-on Design Sprint to solve problems by designing, prototyping, and testing ideas with users.

Through a number of workshops that brought in representatives of the bank and several EAMs, the team delved into existing actors, systems, workflows, and problems and built out a vision for the new product.

The solution was another successful step along the digital enablement journey for the bank:

A highly simplified, quicker onboarding process; Quicker responses to customer queries;
