How do branding and service design fit together? While one concept manages expectations, the other manages experiences. Combining both approaches allows creating brand experience for the benefit of customers as well as for companies. The concept of ‘Brand Services’ are “give-away services” that address relevant user needs and at the same time convey a brand message. In this talk and hands-on exercise, Christian Vatter shows how creating value for people and promoting business goes hand-in-hand.

Christian Vatter is user psychologist and brand consultant. He founded Rlevance Consulting, a human centered business consultancy with a specialty in creating meaningful brands and value-adding customer experiences. In his work he often combines service design with branding techniques to create sustainable bonds with customers. He wrote various articles on this topic and speaks at international conferences.
