Women who Sprint

5 women who are taking the Design Sprint and totally owning it

At a recent Design Sprint Training workshop at Etch Sprints

It’s International Women’s Day and a great time to share some of the Sprint Influencers who I follow everyday.

I did a similar story last year on product designers I follow on Instagram if you want to check that one out 🔥

1. Sabrina Goerlich

Strategic Designer/Design Sprint Master in Affalterbach, Deutschland.

I’ve had a few chats with Sabrina. She’s always one to take on a new challenge, not only in work, but also in play. Always sharing what she’s learning and including as many people as possible.

Read her posts on Medium, and her tweets. Daniel Stillman also did an excellent podcast with her about building a Sprint culture.

4. Tina Pancheva

Tina is a designer with a natural creative talent at Etch, UK. She is full of ideas and intuition with both modern and traditional skills, and helps us to think deeply about the possibilities of visual design. She loves a good horror and a good laugh too!

I’ve worked with Tina a couple of times this year so far and looking forward to many more!
