About this Event

FOR A QUICK GUIDE TO THE SERVICE JAM, WATCH THIS VIDEO

KC design thinkers and doers unite!

Spend the weekend alongside other local students and professionals from design, marketing, business, engineering, software development, social science and more as we come together with a single purpose - to create, prototype and share a new service in less than 48 hours.

The KC Service Jam is a weekend-long design thinking workshop where participants will collaboratively develop innovative new services across all stages including user research, problem framing, ideation, rapid prototyping, testing and iterating toward a solution; all in a single weekend.

How does this work?

Friday August 7 from 6:30pm - 9:00pm (Day 1)

The Jam kicks off Friday evening with a happy hour culminating in the global reveal of a secret theme. Participants on Friday night will work independently and in teams to make sense of the theme and start to identify a real-world problem to focus their efforts.

Saturday August 8 from 9am - 9pm (Day 2)

On Saturday morning participants will learn about people’s needs by conducting field and desk research, begin generating ideas to prototype and pivot across concepts into the evening.

Sunday August 9 from 9am - 3pm (Day 3)

The Jam concludes Sunday as concepts are refined and presentations are built to be published and shared at the closing reception in front of friends, family and a panel of local design experts.

What does the ticket include?

We're providing creative space at the awesome studios of Signal Theory; Happy-Hour Friday, breakfast Saturday, dinner Saturday and breakfast Sunday are on us; all materials to create with (post-its, whiteboards, prototyping supplies, etc.). You may want to bring your own laptop.

Who is this for?

All are welcome! From the newly design-curious to the most experience innovation pros. The KC Service Jam offers an amazing hands-on learning experience alongside other KC designers. You'll walk away with new connections, new tools and a new appreciation for UX and service design.
