2022 Cox Enterprises Summer Design Sprint

The Design Sprint Challenge

The Design Sprint

In a design sprint, a team designs a novel solution to a meaningful problem. Using methods of human-centered design, the team works to develop empathy, define a need, ideate, prototype and test. Ultimately the team communicates the need they discovered and their idea to address it through a compelling story. A sprint is a terrific opportunity to practice your human-centered design skills or to learn about the HCD process.
