Service Design Studio I
In this course, students work in an interdisciplinary environment creating services, products, interfaces and experiences within physical and virtual environments. The practical methods and techniques of service design are developed and explored using comprehensive design processes. Specific techniques, guidelines and examples are used to emphasize the practical aspects of service design where students are required to design in a way that is both user-centric and socially and culturally appropriate. Students must consider the social, technological and economic considerations when designing services. Students research people and lifestyles, use and context, implementation and delivery, economy and commerce of services and the products, networks and environments that enable services to be delivered and experienced. Prerequisite(s): SERV 722.
