Sprint 16

Each year GDS hosts the flagship event on the digital government scene. Bringing together ministers, senior civil servants, digital and technology experts and the civil servants working on services.

Everything is designed, filmed and made in house by our Creative & Design teams. Here’s Sprint 16:

We started with a animated identity for the event, ensuring it worked as well when designing for print as for digital.


Posters, banners and maps for the event


Name badges and agendas


And of course our digital installations and online presence.


We ran a live blog on the day (you can see that here) and trended nationally with #Sprint16

And of course we made videos. We made three main videos to be shown on the day, four that we filmed, edited and published on the day and then three round up films which we shared after the event.

Here’s a few of them:




Highlights after the event




We’re constantly looking for new ways to improve and engage with our audiences so we also ran a workshop on agile ways of working that we streamed live on Periscope and we took questions from our online audience as well as those in the room, if you want to watch that or learn more check out our live blog from the day.
