An on-going project bridging academic research and professional practices.
A long journey
Over the years the platform has become a key resource in the service design discipline, guiding students, practitioners and professionals from all over the world in the discovery of service design tools and techniques.
The Service Design Tools project started leveraging the research done by Roberta Tassi for her graduation thesis Communication Tools for Service Design, in collaboration with POLI.design and Domus Academy Research Center.
A new version of Service Design Tools has been launched, with the main objective of updating the database, refreshing content and case studies and improving the user experience.
We are a multidisciplinary and passionate team of designers, researchers and teachers with the desire to make Service Design tools and techniques accessible to everyone.
