02.01. Get to know the different types of design methods

Learning the different design methodologies will give us a global view of how to structure the design phases, using user-centred methodologies, design thinking or agile design sprints.

01. Overview of design methods

As a first exercise, let's take a look at the different processes we can see, and even at a glance, they will enable structured ways of designing.

02. User-centered design method

One of the fathers of people-centred design. The goal of user-centred design, as the name implies, is to design based on the opportunities and needs of our users.

03. Design thinking method

Design Thinking has been with us much longer than we think. It is based on a real business methodology, but it applies techniques and methods from design to create very interesting synergies.

04. Design Sprint, the planning for executing the design

Perfect synergy between iterative design and agile methodologies. A Design Sprint is nothing more than a planned agenda of several days to execute all critical design processes in an orderly and transparent manner.
