Service Design Award 2020: Finalists Selected

The Service Design Award, curated by the Service Design Network, is the first international service design award to recognise the service design community's achievements in both the public and private sectors.

Participants of our 2020 award process, who have patiently awaited updates that have been delayed due to the global pandemic's challenges, must wait no longer! 

Today, the SDN is incredibly pleased to announce that Service Design Award 2020 finalists have been selected by our international jury of service design experts.
