The Amsterdam Service Jam was organized again! The Service Jam is an event that is organized in 80 places around the world at the same time. A weekend to get introduced or have a practical workout in service design and get together with fellows to have fun. The motto of the Global Service Jam is: Doing Not Talking!

Every year different groups of people come to the event More than half of the 35 participants were experienced (service) designers. It was a great group with lots of enthusiasm! We had talks from 4 young designers. 

The winning team was #freshprince movement. They created a simple an viable concept that could be kicking off since yesterday about breaking your daily routines. 

Have a look at the Blog post of Carien de Heus to see all the insights.
