What is design?

The Design Council is asking “What is Design?”

“Service Design relies on input from several design disciplines at once.”

This is a true reliance for many disciplines; the boundaries between fields are merging. I wonder why they chose this phrase as the input for Service Design. I liked the use of the word ‘seamless’ – making experiences flow seamlessly is the ultimate goal for any service.

This simple and effective visual story relates to the workshop I was involved in with under-graduate students. It also asks the key question I chose to entitle the students brief : “Are you ready to change the world?”
