Your team joins forces with designers and developers from Mint Digital. After four days, we launch a new product prototype.

How it works

Plan
The research phase

We test product propositions on target users. Then we analyse the results, discuss, and design a 4D2L plan.

4D2L
The making phase

We spend 4 days off-site, in a multi-skilled team, designing and building a prototype, ready for testing.

The validation phase

This is where we test and validate. We decide how to push forward, armed with real customer feedback.

Case studies

Clubcard tool

Tesco wanted to create a new online tool for Clubcard customers.Initially, Mint produced six propositions for user testing. 4D2L team members included Tesco, Dunnhumby and Mint, and the four days were spent working together to build on lessons learned from the proposition tests and create one prototype. Tesco were delighted with the results and the entire 42DL process.

Purple Ninja

Youth charity vInspired asked Mint to create a site that would inspire 12-13 year-olds to get their first taste of volunteering. After two weeks of proposition testing, Mint and vInspired used 4D2L to collaboratively build the core of the Purple Ninja experience. The platform encourages kids to do real-word missions by providing online and offline rewards.

Foldable.me is a cardboard avatar creation platform, invented and prototyped in 2011, as part of Mint’s annual product development retreat (a hack-a-thon fuelled by fine dining, sleep deprivation, and rather a lot of beer). Foldable.me was our first Kickstarter success story.

Foldable.me smashed its Kickstarter funding target by 1000%

Universal Music challenged Mint to build a prototype for Pin Radio, an embeddable music player. The prototype was designed and built from scratch over four days in a mixed team made up of two Mint designers, two Mint developers, and three product innovation people from Universal.
