Global Service Jam in Hong Kong
The HASSELL Hong Kong studio recently co-organised the city's inaugural Global Service Jam, an event which brings together people who are interested in using design and creativity to approach problem solving and service innovation.
This global event gives teams 48 hours to develop brand new services inspired by a shared theme and publish them to the world all at the same time. Global Service Jam is held concurrently in more than 80 cities globally.
The Hong Kong event was held at the Flag Out Creativity Centre in Kowloon and gave the local community a chance to find out about HASSELL, who co-organised the event with Hong Kong University's Business Students – Young Entrepreneurs for Society Network.
HASSELL aims to share the practice's knowledge and experience with students by engaging senior designers at events such as these. Ken Chan, a Senior Architect at the Hong Kong studio, was one of the speakers at the inaugural Hong Kong Global Service Jam.
