As a service designer, you begin to see design best practices in all facets of your life–negotiating a cable bill, returning a rug, and even dating.
Harmonic Designs partners with Next Generation Men and Women to expose high school students to service design. Harmonic Designers Olivia Lucas, Mariah Mills, Becky Scheel, and Arjun Srinivas visited South Atlanta High School to engage with students about our pathways to our design careers and to introduce them to the service design profession. In small groups, the designers collaborated on an empathy map design exercise. This exercise helps the students build and visualize a fuller picture of the user. Empathy mapping is widely used across professions and promotes collaborative work.
"Empathy maps really help you dig into and understand all the different people; it is time-consuming but valuable"Next Gen Participant
