Call for Student Projects

For the past four years, Carnegie Mellon has been at the forefront of service design here in the United States.

The discipline has been slowly filtering up into the thesis project level, so last month I visited the CMU campus to attend the School of Design thesis presentations and get a first hand view of some of the work. There were half a dozen projects that incorporated service elements into more traditional information design and interaction design projects and one thesis project that proved to be a fantastic example of service design.

While I was visiting, I interviewed the Masters candidates who were working on service-related theses. I’m working on transcribing the interviews, and I’ll be posting them here over the next few weeks.

I’m sure there are plenty of other service design projects emerging from universities around the world. If you’re a student or a recent graduate and you’ve worked on a project that you’d like to talk about, please get in touch at service [at] howardesign [dot] com. I’d love to showcase some emerging work.
