How neat.

I took an Operations Management class when I was getting my business degree, and one of my favorite parts was about the layout of retail spaces to increase efficiency; is this similar to your architecture firms mention?

Oh goodness, anthropology; one of my favorite things in the world.

I may have trouble sleeping tonight, thinking about all of this.

I can't think of any firms off hand that only do service design, but if I come across any I'll let you know. Typically it's an extension of process from experience firms already out there. Some are more into wayfinding systems that are extensions of architecture firms, others come from people that are graduate design people with an anthro or socio background. It's a bit murky at this point. The main sell is that the designer can save a lot of money through efficiencies and fixing issues that others take for granted.

I always have several tabs open by the time I get to the bottom. I love reading Link Drop as a not-designer. I didn't even know service design was a thing. I just read the Wikipedia entry on it… SO INTERESTING. It would be cool to be a service design consultant… What agencies do that kind of stuff? I'd love to check out some case studies.

omg, the Asian poses. The cutest.
