Service Design Talks 4/11

On Wednesday 4 November another of those lively debating evenings about Service Design will take place at 7 pm in the office of STBY in Amsterdam.

Please be invited. Do let us know you are coming, through either the events page of the Facebook group or the events page in Linkedin.

The book we will be discussing this time is the brand new ‘Designing Services with Innovative Methods’, edited by Satu Miettinen and Mikko Koivisto. The two Dutch outhors represented in the book, Arne van Oosterom and Remko van de Lugt have agreed to be to come by too, so there is ample opportunity to talk shop!

The book can be ordered from the University of Art & design in Helsinki:
I had mine delivered within a week, so no worries.

Order now and start reading! You won’t be disappointed.

Hope to see you on 4 November at 7 pm.
