Get your creative hats on, it's time for the Denver Service Jam!
More Info: http://denverservicejam.org/ Or just register: http://denverservicejam2013.eventbrite.com/ What: A part of a global event, Denver Service Design Jam is a weekend long jam (yes, like a music jam) where designers and other creatively inclined people team up to design a service in response to a surprise theme. The theme is revealed at the beginning of the weekend, and teams have just 48 hours to create a concept, before they’re asked to share it with other designers around the world.
When: 5pm Fri March 1st - 5pm Sun March 3rd
Where: TBD - we're unfortunately still working this out, but it will be somewhere in the Denver/Boulder area. If you have a suggestion of a location that can support a weekend of 20-30 jammers, let us know!!
Who: Anyone and Everyone. But most importantly, you! You do not have to be a service designer, or a designer at all for that matter. This is a chance to work with people you don't normally get to work with. The key to a great jam is having a mixture of talented people who are willing to experiment and challenge each other, each bringing a different piece of the puzzle.
Why: a participant in the Global service jam, you will work through a whole design process in one weekend. Whether you are experienced or completely new to the field, you won’t just be talking about service design, you will be working with others on developing concrete ideas and designs which could become real. It's a chance to share ideas, learn new methods, and have a ton of fun.
