Service Design is gaining popularity in the United States as a better approach to defining and orchestrating service experiences. While having much in common with user experience, service design in practice requires new ways of thinking and new methods of making. It also requires embracing both the complexity of service experiences and the organizations that deliver them.
This workshop is designed to get more user experience practitioners familiar with some of the methods of service design. Our session will focus on several lo-fi making approaches–acting, sketching, storytelling, and blueprinting–that can be used to iteratively conceptualize new service experiences.
The session will be fast-paced and iterative. You'll learn concepts and approaches that only can prepare you to tackle service experience problems, but can easily be applied to any project involving multiple touchpoints or channels. You'll be thrown in the service design deep end, but the water's warm (I promise).
