Join the buzz this Service Design Day!

Service Design Day is a day dedicated to service design enthusiasts all around the world! We want to bring people together from different background and disciplines. Together, we will celebrate service design, raise awareness and create impact this year on June 1!

Naturally, Service Design Day should reflect the discipline’s spirit and energy, which is why we chose June 1 - June orgriginated from the Latin word, young. So join us this year, on the beginning of the youngest month! Together, we will celebrate service design, raise awareness and create impact! This year, we are giving back to our community and launching 20% discounts on accreditation submission, award submission, and professional membership (register with the code "SDDAY20") available only on Service Design Day. But that's not all, there are more ways you can participate!

For the first time this year, we have a theme: Borderless. Some keyword related to it includes: interdisciplinary, international, cross-medium and collaborations. But of course, you are free to interpret the theme any way you want. If you would some brain food on the topic, take advantage of our 50% discount and get a copy of Touchpoint Vol.6 No.3 Blurring Boundaries now! 

 

How can I participate?

 

1. Join our Slack conversation!

To keep with our theme "borderless", we will be holding a borderless exchange on our Slack channel at 5pm CEST (UTC+2) on difficulties that service designers experience. Weigh in on the discussion and share your thoughts with the community and participate in an intellectually stimulating discussion.
