Service Design Day

What is Service Design Day?

Service Design Day was launched in 2016 and is a day dedicated to service design enthusiasts - a world-wide event to bring together people from different backgrounds and disciplines. Together, we will celebrate service design, raise awareness and create impact in the world around us.

Naturally, Service Design Day should reflect the discipline’s spirit and energy which is why we chose June 1, the beginning of the most youthful month!*

Join the buzz and do good - give back! 

*June originates from the Latin word, young

Service Design Day: Do good - give back! 

We would like to invite all organisations, service designers professionals, students and enthusiasts to join us in celebration of Service Design Day.

This year is all about giving back to the community - block your calendars on June 1 and use your service design skills for a greater good! Share your contribution via social media using #SDDay20 and #ServiceDesignDay.

On SDD we want to work together and show the power of service design - let’s demonstrate the true potential of our network.

We are excited to see how our service design community will join the SDD celebration in their own unique way with service design talks, events and activities.

Do good - give back!


Service Design Day Approach

  • Host an event, workshop or training for your local community on the topic of service design
  • Hold a discussion/lightning talk on how service design can help society and contribute to the common good
  • Have an “open door” event or a service design exhibition and invite students,  NGOs, charities or community service organisations to your office
  • Empower service providers to utilise service design, talk about service design tools and methods and discuss the implementation of service design for a greater good
Offer your service design skills!
