12º Design to Business
Oliver King, co-founder and director of Engine in the UK, will be leading a seminar on service design next month at 12º Design to Business in Curitiba, Paraná in Brazil.
According to the Design Brasil, King will discuss the concept of service design, implemented by Engine for clients like Orange, Intercontinental Hotels, Mercedes-Benz, Visa International, the Guardian newspaper, Sky, MSN and Nokia.
The lecture is scheduled for 7:30pm on Tuesday, August 4th at the Paraná Design Center, with simultaneous translation (apparently from English to Portuguese). Admission is free and the event is open to the public.
There seems to be quite a bit of service design interest springing up in Brazil, with epicenters in Rio de Janeiro, Curitiba, São Paulo and elsewhere along the southeastern coast.
