Design Sprint at Google

Yesterday, I was fortunate to be a part of a 6-hour design sprint at one of the Google offices in San Francisco. Google UX Designer, Kai Haley, generously hosted us and took us through the sprint process that they follow at Google. 

Design Challenge

Our challenge for the day:

Design an app that connects designers who want to volunteer their skills to non-profits in their community


Our team got to work with a quick round of lightning talks and interviews to identify insights.

Insights & Opportunities

After sharing our insights with the group, we started clustering our insights to see where there were opportunity areas. We each voted on the clusters that seemed most interesting to highlight areas of interest. 


We did a round of crazy 8 sketching to get our ideas down quickly, and started to piece together a storyboard of our app's concept. 

Rapid Prototyping

Using Google's handy material design templates in Sketch, we split up our storyboard and designed the key screens for our app in just one hour.  

Here's what we came up with:
