We are working in India currently, which gives us an opportunity to observe the local services and the service economy that thrives in our country from a ’service design perspective’. Specially because 'service design' as a new 'saleable' design service is only just getting attention, while age-old services designed from necessity, often through ‘jugaad
' are highly innovative and sustainable. Stewart Brand also talks about some of these ideas in his recent Long Now talk
While all this has been said and heard many a times, we are curious about how each of these individual services actually thrive profitably within the large network. We are also curious about the lives and stories of some of these service providers. And so, over the next few posts, we will be documenting and posting some of these encounters.
