The SDM committee (click photo for their profiles) are a group of passionate volunteers and are keen to hear your ideas and feedback in order to better support and build capacity in this community.
Our Mailchimp list is our member database, subscribe and you’re part of the community.
Membership is free – but there are some paid events and workshops. Events are hosted at various public and private venues. SDM welcomes any ideas, contributions, facilitation and participation from all of its diverse membership.
You can also join the Service Design Melbourne LinkedIn group to connect with members, start discussions and post jobs.
The purpose of Service Design Melbourne (SDM) is to foster and support knowledge sharing on human-centred approaches and outcomes of design through invited speakers, workshops and informal conversations. It is a non-commercial network, focusing on building a community of interest and practice in this area to actively create a space for idea exchange and learn about projects, challenges and opportunities in Australia. It practices and promotes collaboration and collegiality across diverse fields in design, marketing, management, digital technology as well as the academic, business, government and public sectors. In doing so, it aims to provide exposure to and promote the contribution of a holistic approach to Service Design, which includes social innovation, human-centred design and systemic design thinking, that can benefit the public at large.
SDM is facilitated by a committee of passionate individuals. The committee rotates continually as new members join and others exit. In this way, we retain knowledge of the ‘past’ and inject ‘fresh’ ideas into the community. If you’re interested in joining the committee let us know!
Would you like to help organise events? Do you have an article or case study you’d like to share? Are you an agency that would like to get involved with the service design community? Anything else we can help with?
