WHAT PEOPLE SAY
I wished this training existed before! It would have helped me a lot in my career transition into Service Designer role. Great engagement from the teachers and super interesting content, I highly recommend this training!
The curriculum is an instant deep dive into service design. Highly recommended for everyone in the profession and those who would like to join.
I'm really grateful for this chance of learning from and interacting directly with Birgit, the invited instructors and other SD students from around the world. I deepened my knowledge of SD theory and practice and also learned from my classmates and their diverse approaches to the challenge.
The course provided an opportunity to experience the fun and impact of service design; and I feel confident about using a service design approach in my professional work.
It was great to have learned from the best within the Service Design industry. I now confidently say I have a great foundation and skillset to apply them in my daily work.
Great course for designers and non-designers getting started in service design. The faculty members are top-notch and very friendly in sharing resources and answering questions.
