After having attended the Service Design Global Conference in Cardiff this week, we are now feeling ready for action. We were spoiled with engaging speakers like Nick Leon from The RCA who, with great passion, made sure we understood that service design is not a new design discipline; it’s redefining what design is. This year’s theme Transformation Through Service Design showcased many great transformations already going on and inspired us to think big. We hope you are in!
A taste of Copenhagen
Together with NCE Culinology, SDG is leading an innovation programme in Stavanger for players from the Norwegian food industry. These days, the group is on an inspirational trip to Copenhagen, and we hear enviable stories about oyster slurping, beer brewing and marzipan tasting. To accompany the savory inspiration, they have also been to Louisina Museum of Modern Art to experience the trees by artist Ai Weiwei. Composed of dead wood fragments from a forest in China, they remind us that if we continue to ravage the nature, man-made and dead could be the future. A true reality check.
Way to go!
Last Friday was glam night, as we received five diplomas at the annual award show Visuelt. Our tribute to all people involved in creating this very website, Tine Melkerampa, the touch table for Statoil ONS, Hansa packaging range and the Pelifics typography and music. Photo: Espen Schive.
There was magic in our offices last night, when we did an experiment for our guests at Open Studio Crawl. Check out our Water and Particles Experiment here.
Open Studio Crawl
As part of the annual design festival Visueltdagene and its Open Studio Crawl, our office was brimming with visitors last night. We were excited to welcome an open-minded and friendly crowd to experience where we work and take a closer look at some of the things we do.
