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?

I have found that storyboarding integrates seamlessly between Persona development and UI design as a perfect way to visualize the happy paths of already identified Use Cases... This can be an enormous value add for stakeholders. @OneSpring #Visualization #InnovateorDie

The Visual Thinking Revolution is Here! Every biz storyteller is a visual thinker

The Visual Thinking Revolution is Here! Every biz storyteller is a visual thinker | Designing  service |

We are in the midst of a “Visual Thinking Revolution” and leaders in all types of organizations are embracing visual thinking as a literacy of the future.


It seems visual thinking and visual storytelling is a top theme this week in the articles that come my way!


If visual thinking is the next revolution, then anyone building their biz storytelling skills are smack-dab in the middle of it.


Why? Because those who can tell a compelling story are already visual thinkers.  We are masters at distilling complex thoughts down to images that convey meaning. Yahoo!


The job of the storyteller is to feed images to listeners. You need to be able to think visually in order to do this.  And building visual thinking skills is part-and-parcel of becoming a compelling storyteller.


This article give 10 external forces that are fueling the visual thinking revolution. See how your business is doing, or where you fit in with these trends.
