Lately I’ve been revving up to run a design sprint with a local agency interested in redefining their client on-boarding and discovery process. The timing lined up well as my copy of Design Sprint arrived just last week. Authored by local Boston luminaries C. Todd Lombardo, Richard Banfield, and their NYC compatriot Trace Wax, Design Sprint is a practical guide for running sprints within any sized organization.
There’s a section in the book on sprint supplies which I used as a check-list for my own sprint. After loading up my shopping cart on Amazon, I thought “Wouldn’t it be nice if these were helpfully collated in a public Amazon wishlist?”. After some quick Googling, I decided I might be the first to have this idea (please correct me if I’m wrong!).
Without further ado, here’s my Amazon Wishlist for design sprint supplies.
- Water-based flip chart markers (much better than alcohol-based markers on easel pads)
- Self-stick easel pads
- Large and small sticky dots for voting
- 8″ Time timer
- 8.5″ x 11″ Printer paper
- Adhesive putty tabs
- 4×6 multi-color post-its (slightly larger than typical post-its)
- Felt-tipped black pens
- Dry-erase kit
Leave a comment if you have any suggestions for additional supplies and happy sprinting!
