Friends of Figma Berlin's second pandemic event will, once again, take place in the comfort of your own home, office or home office.
Our two prolific guests will be sharing their two cents on the state and different flavours of Design Sprints in 2021, the ever changing tools & rules for running successful sprints and taking a critical look at the landscape and the method itself, beyond all the buzzwords and hype.
Rob Hamblen founder of LEAP was responsible for the Design Sprint experience, product outcomes and Sprint teams at the famous Design Sprint Agency AJ&Smart. Rob created LEAP to help startups and corporations mitigate making the wrong decisions when it comes to creating new digital products. By utilising and customising Design Thinking methodologies with the Design Sprint, LEAP offers a truly unique process and experience to help you define your next product.

Katharina Köth is the founder & Experience Director of Creative Complexity, a design strategy studio to clarify complexity based in Berlin. When asked in the past if she was more of a strategist or creative – she used to answer "Can I be both?". And in this sense, founding CC was the best solution to go forward. Over the past 15 years, she has been responsible for the conceptual development of numerous high-profile digital products, platforms and services.
