Design Workflow

General knowledge intended to understand the workflow of OpenCollective Design

Mapping our process

The process to open-up the design collective is based on a specific concept:

Clarity and transparency in the design process.

In order to achieve this common ground, the design collective has created a consensual map of an ideal design process. One that could adapt to different project sizes and complexities, well understood by designers and non-designers alike.

What does it serve a process map for?

  • Open-up the design production process

  • Produce efficiently

  • Maintain brand cohesion

  • Make sure each individual is working on projects that come to fruition

  • Help adjacent collectives or teams like product management, marketing and engineering know exactly how to work with design

Ideal sprint cycle

The following diagram describes the ideal workflow of a sprint of 10 working days, all the way from planning the sprint to the demo day where the series of design solutions are presented with a public release.
