Co-Design Sessions

Co-design sessions are a valuable tool for companies looking to develop new products or services, or to improve existing ones. By bringing together a diverse group of stakeholders, co-design sessions allow you to explore and understand the needs and challenges of your target audience, and to design solutions that are tailored to those needs.

What are the key benefits of co-design sessions?

By involving your target audience in the design process, you can reduce the risk of developing products or services that don't meet the needs of your customers. This can ultimately lead to cost savings, as you are less likely to have to go back and make significant changes after the fact.

By involving stakeholders in the design process, you can build consensus and buy-in for your products and services. This can help to ensure their success and adoption within your organization.

By partnering with us for co-design sessions, you can tap into the benefits of a collaborative, user-centered design process and create products and services that are more innovative, effective, and successful.

How does this work?

At This Dot Labs, we facilitate and participate in co-design sessions to help our clients create innovative and effective products and services. Our co-design process is designed to be collaborative, participatory, and user-centered, and includes the following steps:

Step 1

Define the problem

We work with you to define the problem or challenge that you are trying to solve, and to identify the key stakeholders who will be involved in the co-design process.

Step 2

Ideate and prototype

We facilitate a collaborative ideation process to generate a range of potential solutions. We get around a big digital canvas and everyone starts brainstorming and evolving ideas.

Step 3


We use a variety of methods to validate designs with stakeholders, including user research, focus groups, and interviews. We create clickable prototypes and/or proof of concept implementations to facilitate this testing. This helps us to validate the assumptions and decisions made in the designs against the needs, challenges, and opportunities of your target audience, without spending too much on product development.

Step 4

Refine and iterate

Based on the results of testing, we help you to refine and iterate on your prototypes to create a final product or service that meets the needs of your target audience. By partnering with us for co-design sessions, you can be confident that you have a team that is skilled in facilitating collaborative and user-centered design processes. Our co-design sessions are an effective way to ensure that your products and services are tailored to the needs of your target audience, and are more likely to be successful in the market.

Step 5


Optionally, we can expand on the assessment engagement to turn the prototypes into a full design system or work alongside your team to implement the designs.
