What is the Service Design
Fringe Festival?

The Service Design Fringe Festival runs alongside the London Design Festival (LDF) to showcase the game-changing work that service designers are doing in London. The festival will run 16-24 September 2017 to coincide with LDF.

The Service Design Fringe Festival turns 4 this year. We're shining a spotlight on the emerging service design discipline at a time when visitors around the world flock to London to be inspired by this great city's design work. 

With this fringe festival, connections between the service design community and the wider design community grow and flourish. We seek to tackle the teething problems of this growing industry, as well as celebrate the innovative work of service designers.

We look forward to seeing you there!
