About the book:

A comprehensive introduction to designing services according to the needs of the customer or participants, this book addresses a new and emerging field of design and the disciplines that feed and result from it.

Divided into two parts to allow for specific reader requirements, Service Design starts by focusing on main service design concepts and critical aspects. Part II offers a methodological overview and practical tools for the service design learner, and highlights fundamental capacities the service design student must master. Combined with a number of interviews and case studies from leading service designers, this is a comprehensive, informative exploration of this exciting new area of design.


About the author:

Lara Penin is an Associate Professor and Director of the Transdisciplinary Design Graduate Program at Parsons School of Design, where students use systems based collaborative and experimental methods to explore how design can help reshape our social infrastructure, ecosystems, and communities. Lara is a co-founder of Parsons DESIS Lab, a multidisciplinary research lab at the intersection of service design and social innovation and sustainable practices.
