New website Service Design Netwerk Nederland

We finally managed to sit down together for a day and compile a coherent website for the Dutch Service Design Network. The design had been prepared by EdenSpiekermann for a while already, but we were all too busy on projects to get the content sorted. We are pleased to have made a good start now.

Let us know if you have any further suggestions on news/activities that should be announced here.
