Hi there 👋. Durran is a new endeavour for me, where I do kind of the same old thing, but a bit different. I still help startups solve business problems, but in a way more effective way, by using workshops. You can read the whole story on the blog.

Hello stranger

Let’s get to know each other.

My name is Daniel Andor, and I'm the Founder and Lead Product Designer of Durran — a product design and innovation agency. We are focusing on helping startups go from idea to validation with real users in just a few days and design awesome digital products faster by running Design Sprint workshops.

I have worked with companies ranging from early-stage startups to massive consumer bases and enterprise businesses across domains such as Technology, Healthcare, Publishing, Education, and Professional Services.

My expertise consists of — but is not limited to — creating new digital products, innovating through the addition of new features or improving existing solutions, and serving as a consultant for every aspect of the product design ecosystem.

Some of the projects I worked on: MEDIJobs, Ooma’s mobile store, Effective Experiments, Doky, Cognetik, Flipsnack.

👉 Success story

Edus designed and tested a new way to onboard teachers into their platform.

We used the Durran Design Sprint to help an EdTech company that serves 650 schools and over 100 000 users rethink their platform on the quest to revolutionize the traditional school system.

Generated 6 concepts & 1 interactive prototype
Gathered feedback from 3 user tests
Defined the new target customer
Aligned the team on what to focus next
Durran Edu case study

"I believe that the main obstacles that we identified through the Sprint were our main pain point - the onboarding, and even more importantly, aligning our team on the same goals. Up until the Sprint, we didn't make time as a team to think about whether what we were doing was right or wrong in these crazy times. This process should be implemented in our projects more often and at a very early stage."

Our new superweapon

What is the Durran Design Sprint?

As the name implies, it is a quick and brave way to move forward and create actionable solutions for your business. Durran Design Sprint is based on a decision-making process that identifies and elevates challenges, generates solutions, and allows us to make easy decisions delivering the biggest impact with the smallest effort.
The most important aspect of a Durran Design Sprint is to get it started because positive outcomes are inevitable. The whole team works together but everyone contributes alone and there are no discussions, which allows the most important ideas supported by the majority to win.

FlipSnack – Content editor

The idea behind FlipSnack’s content editor was both to create a tool that helps users create or improve their own flipbooks by adding buttons, images, videos and even a PayPal widget (before that, FlipSnack let you just upload PDF and turn it into a flipbook), but also to stay ahead of the competition.

You are in good hands

Daniel is hard working, detail oriented and up to date in UX/UI. His work is something users can’t ignore. When user satisfaction is important, when you’re dealing with millions of users you want to make sure you constantly improve product and UX. Daniel is very logical, highly intellectual with impressive intuition about how users use the products, and he is among the top #3 of the best product people I worked with.
