Did you figure out what you want to create but have no idea how to approach your idea from the design point of view? Discovery Workshops are dedicated to people like you, who already came up with an idea for a business but don’t know where to start.

What are Discovery UX Workshops?

Discovery workshops are a 7-day process during which we validate and refine the idea for your product from the user, technology, and business perspectives.

The process consists of workshop sessions with your team, as well as our internal work, to ensure the product is ready for development.

Discovery UX Workshops are mainly used to:

  • Gather essential information about the project
  • Understand business requirements
  • Build agreement across project supporters
  • Visualize your idea and save valuable resources

What is Information Architecture (IA)

It is an important aspect of UX Design that focuses on the creation of a structure, features, and hierarchy for the website, application or other product. It aids users in navigating through the Web or Mobile app, or other product, from their position, as well as finding and processing the information they need to understand where they are as users.

Information architecture is about helping people understand their surroundings and find what they’re looking for, in the real world as well as online.
