One story, design and development

Hey there,

I'm curious how other teams handle the following:

Workflow: Design work is done one sprint in advance of development work.

You create a user story - "as a user, I would like faster access to peanut butter so that I can make my sandwich more quickly". 

Now this task requires both design and development work. So do you assign story points to this story as a whole, accounting for both design and development work? And if so, does that mean the story enters the sprint twice? One sprint for design and one sprint for development?

Or do you create a design task and a development task? But if you do that, do you ever bring the story into the sprint? Or is it just a backlog reference? 

How do you handle tackling one user story that needs to be worked on in two different sprints, one for design and one for development?


And if you use epics instead of a user story, where does the user story fit into the epic?
