We need you!

The Practical Service Design community is producing a “Faces of the Community” video, and we need you! This video production will be featured on stage at prime time at the Service Experience Conference in San Francisco on October 23, 2017. This will mark the 2-year anniversary of launching our community at SXConf in 2015, so it’s a special way for us to celebrate together.

We want broad and diverse representation from our community in this video production, so we really hope you’ll participate! All you need to do is film some selfie videos (c’mon, we know you do this already for fun).

See below for instructions! We can’t wait to see your videos. Don't worry about mistakes or silliness, these are all going to be edited into a montage of clips with music and text overlays. So just go for it!


Deadline for submissionS: September 15th


Instructions

  1. Read the list of video prompts below (2 options for those new to service design, and those more experienced). Reflect on the prompts before filming your videos.
