From the global Service Design Network:
The Service Design Award is the premier award for service design. It is organised by the Service Design Network, the global organisation for service design professionals, academia and business. The Award will recognise outstanding work in the field of service design in both commercial, public and academic categories. It is open to any organisation or individual worldwide and the work will be judged by a jury of internationally recognised professionals.
The Service Design Award 2015 will be integrated into the 8th annual Service Design Global Conference program, which will take place 2-3 October, 2015 in New York City.
Shortlisted and awarded work will receive extensive coverage within the conference and subsequent publications. As the field of service design continues to grow and develop, and as the impact of services and customer experience is increasingly recognised on a global scale, a Service Design Award will showcase best practices to a worldwide audience. The award:
- Contributes towards the sharing of knowledge, experience and techniques throughout the service design community
- Helps to establish and apply criteria by which the successful application of service design can be judged
- Reinforces the value of service design within the world of business by showcasing innovative and successful projects
- Celebrates and rewards successful practitioners within our community
Winning or being shortlisted for a Service Design Award will act as a guarantee of professionalism and quality. This in turn should allow companies with in-house service design competence to attract better staff, while service design agencies will attract better clients.
