Service Design: Designing the Invisible

The main goal of service design is to explore the many ways in which communities of people, interested in many different fields, ranging from art, design, product and digital development, and innovation, are merging and influencing each other in the world of material culture, to create great new experiences, both for themselves and the larger society. What makes an experience great? What is the role of design in all this, and how is the role of design changing nowadays? What accounts for success? How are the processes of design and innovation changing?

Businesses are increasingly thinking about services as possible alternatives to the manufacturing driven model of consumption, based on purchase, disposal and replacement. Service design is being developed out of the environmental management literature as an area concerning the investigation of alternative means and possible solutions to balance the need for competitiveness of the many businesses operating in the markets, with the imperative environmental concern. Newly created solutions, also referred to as product-service systems, are designed and combined so that they jointly are capable of fulfilling unmet people needs, in ways that are capable of spiraling up and unveil new synergies and opportunities.
