Droog − a different perspective on design Situated in five historic buildings, Hôtel Droog is more a labyrinth than just a simply beautiful building. Each of the spaces have their own unique character, but all reflect the design sensibility that Droog brings. Since we tend to rebuild the rooms quite often, you can be assured of an original event location that will certainly surprise your guests. Cafe Droog At your service!

Using design to innovate The way the NHS Institute works is inspired by the way many innovative organisations work. It has its origins in the design industry where the idea of having significant involvement from end-users in the design and production process has long been recognised and valued. Of course, it has sometimes been a challenge to explain how design methodologies can improve the delivery of public services. As the Design Council noted not so long ago: “… design is a problem-solving process but it is difficult to think of what problems it can help you solve when all you really know about designers is that they make nice gadgets like iPods or will have created the graphics for that attractive label on your tin of baked beans.” We see design as a way of thinking and an approach to improving services that adds great value to the context of healthcare innovation. How do we use the service design approach for healthcare innovation?
Service Design Research This list represents a summary of the past thirty years of service design literature. The citations were compiled from the Emergence conference at Carnegie Mellon University as well as the Designing for Services project in the UK, service design syllabi at CMU and individual research. I've excerpted the abstracts and introductions to the papers and cross-referenced examples and concepts so that it's easy to follow the development of ideas such as "service blueprinting" across multiple papers. Select any underlined term to filter the list, showing only papers that share that particular concept, example, author, journal or decade. If you'd like to help fill in the gaps by suggesting other canonical papers, e-mail the citations to email@example.com
Jan Gehl - World Design Summit Gehl ArchitectsDenmark While Jan Gehl’s research on public spaces and public life began in Copenhagen, it was quickly applied to many other cities throughout Europe, North America, Asia, and Australia. His ideas and approaches to design for public spaces incorporate the cutting edge of technology without losing sight of what best supports and enhances people’s experience of everyday life in the public realm. In 1960, Jan Gehl earned his BA and MA in Architecture from the School of Architecture at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and began practicing as an architect. Jan is the author of Life between Buildings, Public Spaces - Public Life, New City Spaces, New City Life, Cities for People (2010) and How to Study Public Life (2013). Both his books Life between Buildings and Cities for People have been published in more than 30 languages.
Design Thinking for Educators Design thinking is a mindset. It is the confidence that everyone can be part of creating a more desirable future, and a process to take action when faced with a difficult challenge. That kind of optimism is well needed in education. Classrooms and schools across the world are facing design challenges every single day, from teacher feedback systems to daily schedules. Wherever they fall on the spectrum of scale – the challenges educators are confronted with are real, complex, and varied. And as such, they require new perspectives, new tools, and new approaches.

Design Friction is a design studio exploring current and emerging issues related to social, cultural and technological changes experienced by our societies. Through speculative scenarios setting up imaginary spaces, objects and services, Design Friction approach provides a starting point for discussion on our expectations for the evolution of organisations. Projects from the studio are designed to be open and participatory, in order to address complex controversies to public who are not aware of it.
Design Kit: The Human-Centered Design Toolkit In April 2015, IDEO.org launched an exciting new evolution of the HCD Toolkit the Field Guide to Human-Centered Design. The Field Guide is the latest in IDEO.org’s suite of teaching tools and a step forward in sharing the practice and promise of human-centered design with the social sector. A full-color, 192-page book, the Field Guide comes with 57 design methods, the key mindsets that underpin how and why IDEO.org believes design can change lives, a full slate of worksheets, and case studies from projects that show human-centered design in action.
smile.relax.repeat. Mike's been doing this hotel thing for a while. 25 years, to be exact. He started his gig opening the Orlando World Center Marriott back in 1986. From there, he dabbled in other Marriotts until the “island bug” bit him and he went off-shore to Puerto Rico to open the El Conquistador Resort in 1993, where he was Director of Sales. Having had enough tostones and Medalla, Mike joined Gaylord Hotels in 1999 and opened the Gaylord Palms Resort in Orlando as Vice President, Sales and Marketing.
