Norsk Form og Oslo Lufthavn (OSL) inviterer til DogA-samtale om tjenestedesign den 9.mai, i forlengelse av konkurransen "Tjenestedesign - reisendes opplevelse".
OSL satser nå på tjenestedesignere for å nå visjonen og
styrke omdømmet sitt – fra å være god til å være best. Er ikke det en
jobb for reklame- og markedsfolk? Og hvordan henger
organisasjonsutvikling og tjenestedesign egentlig sammen? Designerne vil
bidra til å øke flyplassens passasjerorientering og gjøre opplevelsene
av å være på flyplassen bedre.

I wrote a piece a while back that there was a "war" of sorts going on between (among?) information achitects (who frequently came out of the library science, writing, or HCI fields), usability experts, and "designers," and by that, I mean makers of pretty pictures and high concepts (frequently designers who came out of a classic design-for-print-ads field).
