How Design Thinking can unlock innovation.

Design Thinking is a proven methodology, taught by The Institute of Design at Stanford, that provides a solution-based approach to solving problems. Design by nature is curious, and Design Thinking is no different, encouraging exploration and investigation. At Avalon CX, curious exploration continues through all our work, Research, Design, and Development.

Benefits

Design Thinking challenges assumptions and dives deeper to seek out the underlying human need, or re-framing the problem in human-centric ways.

 

With this new frame, we run structured design sessions to find alternative perspectives, that shed new light on the problem. Second, we explore the options, quickly isolating the ideas that work and eliminating those that don't.

 

Design Thinking fast tracks your path to success by finding a solution that is technologically viable, financially feasible, and desirable to customers.

How we can help

Avalon CX helps you design and develop experiences that your customers love. We're experts in Design Thinking, using it to overcome business challenges. We run a remote, focused workshop where we bring your team (and sometimes even your clients) together. In this workshop, we guide your team through the Design Thinking process. We help to improve your existing products or services by solving persistent problems or tackling big challenges fast. We also explore the viability of completely new experiences. By bringing ideas to life and validating them directly with your customers, we make you a leader in digital innovation through Design Thinking.
