First Service Design Talks event in London, 22 March 2011

Following in the footsteps of the successful series of Service Design Talks held in Amsterdam over the past two years, we are happy to announce the first Service Design Talks event in London: On Wednesday 22 March all interested in reflecting on practices and theories of Service Design are warmly invited to get together to discuss the book ‘This Is Service Design Thinking’.

We are aware that it is a bit cheeky to propose a book that we have ourselves contributed to, but we honestly believe that this book is worth discussing. Everyone is free to be critical as you want to. In fact this is really appreciated!

Marc Stickdorn and Jakob Schneider, the initiators and main authors & designer, have agreed to take part in the session from Austria via Skype, which is great. We are looking forward to a lively interactive session.

Everyone interested, and around in London on 22 March, is welcome to join us. 
Please RSVP through Eventbrite (only 20 places available):

Location: STBY studio, London Fruit & Wool Exchange, Brushfield Street, London E1 6AA (big building between The Gun pub and Barclays branch)
Time: 19:00 – 21:30

Make sure to order the book in time (=NOW) and to read it in advance!

Tip: Don’t miss the opportunity to get a 20% discount, by using the promotion code the publisher has kindly offered. Just go to and enter the code ’11TDS36′.

Hope to see you on 22 March!

The Subspecies of Design Researcher

As a design research agency, STBY has worked with design researchers of many shapes and sizes. While the role of ‘design researcher’ becomes more common and recognised as a formal position in many different types of organisations, it’s worth reflecting on how we all work and the unique skills and attitudes needed in different settings.
