Hong Kong Service Jam

Challenge your thinking and build your creative confidence at this design-driven hackathon.

 
 

Global Service Jam

9-11 March, 2018
Hong Kong


We're joining with cities across the globe to design and build services that never existed before. Come along for a weekend of design thinking, prototyping and service-making. Everyone's welcome.

Global Service Jam is a three-day, intensive workshop, although playshop might be a better word. It’s part of a movement of design-driven hackathons, we call them jams, which is happening on one weekend in cities across the globe. In short, we’re bringing together all kinds of people to design, prototype and present a service in a weekend.

Jam experience

Build invisible things.

Services aren’t tangible, and designing them is a challenge. You’ll get the chance to try new tools and approaches, and get help from top-notch mentors along the way.

Participants

Jamming is for everyone.

 

Big-minded designer?

Designers who like to stretch their mind, and tackle big sticky problems become service designers. At the service jam you’ll practice taking a broad approach and having a bigger impact.


 
 

Design-curious coder?

Code is great, but it’s just one part of the puzzle. Practice using tech to make human-friendly value propositions at the jam.


 
 

Entrepreneur struggling to design your business?

Making something from nothing is scary. Entrepreneurs can get practice swimming through ambiguity and making decisions your customers will love at this weekend.


 
 

New to design-thinking?

Design is a powerful way to solve sticky problems and give your business strategic direction. You’ll skip the slides and theory, and learn by doing at the jam.
