Here’s a short recap of all the fun we had at this year’s Atlanta Service Jam..
To all our Jammers still working hard on their prototypes, please check out this document for final day info.
Yesterday we introduced you to the design pros that will be joining us at Atlanta Service Jam 2016 as mentors and speakers. With the event being held at Georgia Tech this year we will also be joined by a host of current Masters level students of Service Design and closely related fields of Industrial Design and Human Computer Interaction (HCI). These are the talented up and coming designers that will be our Jam Mentors:
The venue for Atlanta Service Jam 2016 is on the Georgia Institute of Technology campus at the College of Architecture building. It’s walkable from various Midtown locations, or you can catch the free Tech Trolley from the Midtown MARTA stop. Visit the Parking and Transportation Services site for times and map.
If you plan to drive there are a number of options. On Friday we recommend trying to find a metered spot along Brittain Dr NW ($2/hour) or the visitor parking slightly further away on Ferst DR NW (also $2/hour). On Saturday a full day of parking is $15 at the Ferst Dr NW lot, or try Tech Square on 5th Street which is also $15 for the whole day and closer to Midtown. More info here and a map showing the different areas in blue.
For Uber or Lyft the address is 246 4th St NW, Atlanta, GA 30313.
We have a diverse team of talented individuals helping to organize and mentor at Atlanta Service Jam 2016. Firstly, let us introduce the Service Design pros that will be joining us as mentors and speakers during the event.
There’s even more love for Atlanta Service Jam today as we are able to announce sponsorship from technology staffing solutions partners Robert Half Technology, global technology, business and design learning community General Assembly, and locally based payment transaction experts TSYS.
Thanks to all our sponsors for helping us to prepare what will be an amazing Jam.
This is what you will find out over one very fun and very productive weekend. We’ll help you get a first-hand understanding by applying Service Design tools alongside practicing designers and current students in the field.
This year we are lucky to have Aniela Chertavian joining us from Porsche who will be delivering the “What is Service Design?” talk to Jammers on Friday 26th. We have many other highlights to follow over the weekend so keep checking back to find out more, or better still, purchase your ticket now and find out in person.
