Design for Services

Design for Services explores what service design brings to the table and reflects on why the ideas and practices of service design are resonating with today's design community. The contributors offer a broad range of concrete examples to help clarify the issues, practices, knowledge and theories that are beginning to define this emerging field. Whilst acknowledging service design as the disciplinary term, Anna Meroni and Daniela Sangiorgi focus on articulating what design is doing and can do for services and how this connects to existing fields of knowledge and practice.

  • Publisher: Routledge

This third edition of An Introduction to Design and Culture has been revised and updated throughout to include issues of globalization, sustainability and digital/interactive design. New for this edition is a chapter which covers key changes in design culture. Design culture has changed dramatically in the 21st century, the designer-hero is now much less in evidence and design has become much more interdisciplinary. Drawing on a wealth of mass-produced artefacts, images and environments including sewing machines, cars, televisions, clothes, electronic and branded goods and exhibitions, author Penny Sparke shows how design has helped to shape and reflect our social and cultural development. This introduction to the development of modern (and postmodern) design is ideal for undergraduate students.
