Designing  service
One of the misunderstandings of these days is that a designer has an artist or artisan background. In that approach designers are idea generators, visualizers and prototypers.   That is not our point of view. Our adagium comes from the management writer Herbert Simon, who stated that "Everyone designs who devises courses of action  aimed at changing existing into preferred ones".  As stated by others, this version of design tends to abstraction and general expertise.   The focus of this blog is service and services. In our world  service is exchanged for service. All firms are service firms; all markets are centered on the exchange of service, and all economies and societies are service based. And just even government and other institutions are always exchanging services for services. But be sure, in this era of change there is a heavy focus also on concept generation, visualization and digital concept and prototypes.   Interested in designing services?

Launching a design isn't the end of the crative journey, it's just the moment when it meets reality. A designer sholdn't leave the project until all requirements are satisfied and the users' response is measured, analyzed and optimized. In the last of three articles in a series about UX for startups we learn why launching a new feature isn't a cause to celebrate, but an opportunity to optimize the solution.

Design is the creative process where visions are brought to reality. As UX practitioners we are responsible for all aspects of the user experience, all the way from needs to visual impressions along with stakeholders and business goals. And we do whatever we are capable of to optimize the design based on the research and user input we obtain. But it's not enough to just release what we "think" is the best solution and never look back. Measuring the users' response is essential both for personal development and the design itself. This article explains why. /Hans
