We use Design Sprints to compress work that would usually take months into days.  We cut the fat out of the standard design process to launch products faster so we can learn from real user data, not guesswork.

No Busy-Work

When you pay for a design agency, at least 50% of your budget is going to “busywork”. This is simply work that keeps the agency employees busy, but has absolutely no value for you. Do you really think 3 weeks of research and benchmarking is really necessary? No, it’s not and they know it too.

Yeah, we know that design agencies don’t like when we point this out, but it’s true: The large-scale, complicated hierarchies and superstar creative directors that were once key to agencies’ successes are now exactly what’s putting them in the ground. As agencies struggle to “go digital” and adapt their existing structure to a world that no longer has time to hang around and wait for them to get it right, we ask “Why should a project take 6 months, when it could take 8 days?”

As the antithesis of the traditional Design Agency, AJ&Smart has been lean and digital from day one. Using a core team of just 10 employees; AJ&Smart is dedicated to creating the best products and services, without wasting your time or budget. No busy-work, promise.
