“SPARCK helped us define our CX vision and the role our national digital channels play in putting health and care directly in the hands of people in the future. They ensured this was not only grounded in best practice but brought to life for multiple audiences, laying the foundations for CX principles/thinking being embedded across our work."
Emma Bradley, Head of Customer Experience, NHS Transformation Directorate
We follow the Design Thinking ‘Double Diamond’ – but with a twist. We combine the creativity of SPARCK and our technology heritage to rapidly research, design, prototype, and deliver transformational solutions to help your organisation innovate at pace. Encompassing our approach to design thinking, we also help you:
“Design is core to successful innovation. Great design means putting the needs, wishes and behaviours of people at the heart of the innovation process, so that new ideas are truly desirable as well as being technically feasible and financially viable.”
BEIS, UK Innovation Strategy
Discover. Design. Deliver.
We’re SPARCK, the design and innovation heart of technology consultancy BJSS. We use research and human-centred design to create technology that serves people and the planet.
Our motto is ‘design to deliver’. And we truly mean it. Our lean product development approach has helped public and private sector clients to launch new, innovative products and services in just eight to 12 weeks.
Our design and innovation team works closely with BJSS’ world-class consulting and engineering team. Together, we’re able to rapidly experiment with new product prototypes to test concepts and ideas with users before building and launching them.
We don’t just apply design thinking to new digital products. We also have experience in applying the principle to strategies and CX design, working with organisations such as NHSx to reinvent the health service’s national digital strategy.
We’re a group of thinkers, innovators, strategists, researchers, designers, technologists, makers and do-ers. This ensures our experts have a wealth of skills and experiences to share with you to find the best solutions to your organisation's problems and user needs.
Explore and test next-generation products, services, and business models. We offer an end-to-end innovation pathway using a highly creative human-centred approach. We will help you move rapidly from left-side thinking about your organisation’s future to a set of actionable ideas that you can quickly prototype at low risk to identify the sources of greatest value. Finally, we will help you operationalise innovation to generate a stream of practical ideas.
A creative end-to-end process that helps you to imagine new futures and rapidly explore arising opportunities.
We offer the following innovation pathway, which can be taken end to end or applied individually:
Make trends and future scenarios tangible and actionable through a creative process of horizon scanning, co-creation, and vision prototyping.
Innovate continuously and prepare your organisation for future success.
Venture into the unknown by rapidly exploring new ways to create value.
Deliver value early, test ideas, validate with real users, and pivot or change if necessary.
Systemise how innovation works across your organisation, including your innovation process, capabilities, and tooling.
Create and launch world-class digital products and services. Our designers will help you design and develop people-centric digital products and services, bringing together multi-disciplinary teams to ensure desirability, feasibility, and viability. This is what we mean by design to deliver. We ensure products deliver value to your users and your organisation.
Benefit from our experience of delivering digital products and services used by millions of people every day.
Understand your users and their needs, as well as their motivations. Ensure your research reflects diversity and inclusion to develop better products and services that people want and can use.

Amplify the value and impact of design across your organisation and services using human-centred design principles.
Create engaging and consistent experiences across products, services, and touchpoints. Using design thinking techniques, we help you create a compelling and people-centric vision for your customer experience backed up by a deployable strategy linked to your key strategic aims.
