To design the future of Service Design in Switzerland we need to understand how it was in the past and how it is today.

A small survey with insights from 52 Service Design practitioners. 

At the creation of the Swiss Chapter of the Service Design Network (in 2019), the team spread a survey to all known Service Design practitioners in Switzerland.
