3 Days


Our goal was to ensure attendees left with a broader understanding of digital solutions, introducing a fresh mindset for a new perspective. This included teaching them new skills and instilling a holistic work approach focused on users, guiding ideation from simple to complex.


We had limited time to delve into understanding their company and identifying our audience, which are crucial steps for effectively guiding them through mastering a new design tool within a tight three-day window.


The training boosted the team's UX maturity through our innovative methods, such as having workshops with smaller groups for active involvement and inclusivity. Our customized presentations assured the free flow of ideas, and also introduced new work methods and deepening the participant's understanding of customer preferences and needs.

  • ✦ Conduct usability tests and iteration on prototypes

Considering their clients' field, we aimed to enhance seemingly challenging sectors like governmental/national animal health care and livestock tracking. We introduced several UX Design and Research methods to discover the most effective approaches possible.
