New to Service Design

Find out more about what service design is, where to find great case studies, where you can study it and the benefits of being an SDN member.

What is Service Design?

Service Design is a collaborative process of researching, envisaging, and then orchestrating experiences that happen over time and multiple touchpoints.

Want to dig deeper? Take a look at Touchpoint; the first and only journal dedicated to the practice of service design including interviews, articles and case studies. Published by practitioners for practitioners, Touchpoint is essential reading for both newcomers and seasoned experts.

Where can I meet like-minded Service Designers?

Why not join your local SDN chapter? These are volunteer-led, non-profit and grassroots organisations in which people connect, create and exchange knowledge at a local level. Chapters are a great way to meet like minded professionals, service designers, students and academics - anyone who loves service design and wants to learn more is welcome! Each chapter has their own website where you can find out about their upcoming events.
