Service Design drinks in London

Design drinks are happening everywhere around the globe! (Uhm, around the North Sea that is for now, but it feels like this is definitely part of a wider movement.) On 19th June there will be SD drinks in London. Again at the Slaughtered Lamb. And again I cannot make it, but I hope many other people will. Have fun guys! We will toast on your health during the NL Design drinks on the 17th. (How’s Copenhagen doing at the moment? Any drink planned on the 18th? That would be a real laugh.)

More information on where to go etcetera on the flyer:
