Service Design Day

The need to reassess how we operate as a society has never been greater as the world continues to cope with the effects that the pandemic and ongoing wars have had on global communities, economies, and social networks.

As service designers, we recognise the importance of our work in these uncertain times, which is why we're excited to announce that this year's Service Design Day (June 1, 2023) will continue the "Do Good - Give Back" campaign.

With its launch, we invite all practitioners, students, agencies, and academics from all across the globe to join in and lend your support to those organisations most in need of your services.

How can I participate?

  • Host an event or an online meetup, workshop or training for your local community around 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 online "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 the greater good
Offer your pro-bono service design skills to an organisation in need!

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
