Service design competition organized by Aaltoes attracted young talents to Urban Mill

On 23rd of April, Urban Mill welcomed 30 innovative and young talents in a rapid prototyping workshop and competition organized by Aalto Entrepreneurship Society Aaltoes and sponsored by Fjord.

Aaltoes-Fjord1-PSAaltoes-Fjord2-PS

Participant of this workshop-competition were international and multidisciplinary people who wanted to spend a day, learning how to get real with sketches and ideas and building them in a short time.

Fjord as a service design agency walked participants through the process, from Discovery to Describe and Design. Participants worked on the real service design case of Aurinkomatkat and did their very best to redesign their service in a short time.

At the end of the day, the stakeholder got surprised by the quality of works achieved in a short time and evaluated all the works and selected the best one.
