Service Design Now is a one-day conference packed with front-line stories about Service Design in Melbourne.
With the massive growth of the community over the past few years, there is the perception that Service Design has reached a level of maturity in Australia. This has led to new discourses and discussions around the direction the field has been heading.
Responding to this, we’ve invited speakers from across academia, startups and the enterprise to go beyond the ‘show and tell’ – diving into the challenges we face in our practice through a broad spread of conference presentations, workshops, discussion groups and more.
These speakers have been asked to share their “War Stories” – the kind of stories told in the pub at the end of the week, rather than what you would usually hear at a conference or read about online.
It’s a day to celebrate the growth of the community in Melbourne and a place for us all to share and speculate how it might evolve from here.
