It was a very close race this year since all of the 18 shortlisted projects showed a refined and dedicated understanding of what good service design is and how it can be done. The jury commended 5 winners who stood out amongst the rest as having the most convincing outcomes, the clearest and most well developed process as well as a convincing collection of success metrics that set them apart.

Gayle Rice PhD from The Glasgow School of Art won the first Student Service Design Award with a project for the Glasgow City Council - Leaving Care Services (LCS).
