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.


Come up with a billion ideas and learn how to pick just the right one.


Research your customer. Learn what they care about and how they live and work.


Work with new people. Meet new minds and learn how they take on problems and work.


Build. Make your idea real, through maps, visualisations and prototypes.


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.



Saturday, you’ll be up to your ears in post-its. Sunday, you’ll have a finished service.
