Solving problems through Design.
I am Philipp, a product and experience designer from Berlin. I help startups, NGOs and corporates solving problems - from research and identifying user's needs to concept to deliverable.
A holistic and human-centered approach to design identifies needs and problems of end-users in order to come up with innovative solutions.
User-centered design can be characterized as a multi-stage problem solving process. It not only requires designers to analyse and foresee how users are likely to use a product but also to test the validity of their assumptions.
Design Sprints remove a lot of waste from conventional innovation projects and answer critical business questions through design, prototyping, and testing in just five days. The process developed at Google Ventures draws on Design Thinking principles and combines them with elements from Lean Startup, which makes this process so efficient.
Design Sprints avoid endless debate-cycles, reduce risk and focus on producing tangible results within days instead of months.
Agile Development describes a set of principles, that advocate adaptive planning, early delivery and continuous improvement. It encourages rapid and flexible response to change.
