Master of Design for Services Finale #mdfs14

In the past twelve months, students from the Master of Design for Services Programme at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art, University of Dundee have been tackling challenges from visualising health test results to developing ways to include older people in policy decisions and designing books to enable conversations to happen about significant life changes.

They have worked with businesses, public and not for profit organisations using design tools including observation, visualisation and prototyping to find new ways of engaging service users and providers to design better ways of doing things.

Yesterday, I had the pleasure of attending the Master of Design for Services Finale event at the University of Dundee's Scrymgeour Hall, at which the students showcased their work.  This was a very interesting and inspiring event and a great advertisement for Duncan of Jordanstone.    The photo (below) shows Professor Mike Press, Programme Director, Design & Craft, at Duncan of Jordanstone, opening the event :
