Success story: how Hanno runs remote design sprints with Mural

Hanno is a team of 11 designers from all over the globe who work remotely on every project. Design thinking is an underlying mindset across everything they do, but it's a challenge to collaborate visually and carry out design thinking methods with their team geographically distributed.
Laïla leads the Hanno team through remote design sprints using MURAL, which allows everyone to be involved in the design process while saving time and travel costs associated with in-person workshops.
Currently, there are very few online tools that replicate the experience that’s similar to what a real space would offer. One of these that does get close to what you’d get from a real space is MURAL. — LAÏLA VON ALVENSLEBEN Head of Culture & Collaboration, MURAL
How they do it
Create templates in advance for each section of the design sprint

Continue adding content to murals in between work sessions
Laïla is Head of Culture & Collaboration at MURAL. She is also a remote work coach with a background in UX Design, helping distributed teams improve their collaboration practices and cultivate a remote working culture that will enable them to work from anywhere.
