Design Students – Join us for a 5-day Sprint

TfL’s Experience Design team is inviting 6 enthusiastic design students to take part in a 5-day design sprint in collaboration with the TfL Cycle Hire team. The goal is to offer hands-on experience of the mindset and tools of the human-centred design that the TfL Experience Design team use in their everyday work.  

The 5-day design sprint is part of the Designology calendar of events being hosted by the London Transport Museum, and each day the students will learn different design and user research techniques. We’ll offer support to prototype and test out ideas quickly.

The 5-day design sprint

On Monday you will engage with the Cycle Hire team to discover the design challenge of the sprint and understand the importance of field research.

On Tuesday you will start to generate ideas and map the idea flows with the other participants.

On Wednesday you and the other participants will test your draft ideas on the public and refine your ideas based on their feedback.

On Thursday the day will be all about working in a team to digitally prototype ideas

On Friday you’ll work together to test the prototype with users and present your findings to TfL’s Experience Design and Cycle Hire teams.

By the end of the 5 days, you and the team will have developed and tested one or more digital prototypes together with the TfL Experience and Cycle Hire teams.
