Whoops, my bad for not properly reading the post.
I'm really skeptical of any new heavily marketed design paradigm, so I thought this was a good alternative take on design sprints.
And really, I was already doing "design sprints" years ago in my freelancer days. It's just that in those days we used to call them “what do you mean, you want it done for next week??!"
Yeah, maybe I should remove the self-imposed 5 a day rule and be more picky… Something to think about for the next version.
So basically http://sidebar.io but without the "5 links a day" angle and sponsored links?
If I'm completely honest, I thought the video was too tame. You have to try really hard if you want to out-pretentious some of the actual designers we have around…
I think at this point I have no idea what "UX" is even supposed to mean anymore, it's just become another empty buzzword that popups and call-to-actions yell at me while I'm trying to read…
It was part of our UX/Product Design package: 2–6 weeks of up-front user research.
I think one of the big divides people don't talk about enough in the design world is the difference between design agencies, who are always looking for new methodologies and angles to sell to their customers, and in-house design teams or individual freelancers, who usually just need to Get Stuff Done.
It's kind of funny reading about fast-moving, don't-overthink-it "design sprints" promoted as some kind of breakthrough, when that's just how most small companies and startup operate out of necessity and lack of resources anyway…
