Design Thinking

Our Design Thinking Principles and Process

Design thinking is an active, empathetic, and relentless focus on optimizing the user and customer experience that solves complex problems and guides business decisions.

In order to create a product or service that people will love to use, design thinking is essential to the process.

Design is the structure of the interaction. A Design Sprint is an intense, focused series of structured activities.

And Design Thinking is a set of underlying principles that push us to remember the end user in everything we build.

Expert product delivery and scaling business solutions depends on figuring out the right problem. This illustration depicts a product team member who is holding a marker, and standing in front of a whiteboard where they have illustrated various success strategy images and bar graphs.

Expert product delivery is not dependent upon brilliant engineers and designers. It’s dependent upon a team that believes in the process of figuring out the right problem and the most appropriate solution. It’s about building and building upon empathy, until it leads to delight.

Design Thinking Principles: The Five Phases

We apply design thinking to each piece of the process as we deliver the products we build. We are always empathizing, always prototyping, always learning.

We invite you to learn more about each phase in Design Thinking:

We practice five phases of Design Thinking. This illustration depicts a list of items on a clipboard, set against a heart shape in the background to symbolize empathy.

Design Tools at Revelry

At Revelry, we believe in eliminating friction in product delivery. One point of friction for designers is researching and hand picking component packages.

So, we built a UI component kit, and we optimized it for the kind of projects that teams who build custom software do. It needs to be just as good at launching slick home pages as it is at delivering admin interfaces.
