Hong Kong Service Jam - July Jam
Hong Kong’s designathon.
Challenge your thinking and build your creative confidence at this design-driven hackathon.
Join us just after Rise for a weekend of concocting, researching, and prototyping a experience, product or service that never existed before.
Try, mess up, struggle, have fun.
You’ll have three days to jump into a team and design a service or experience.
Get excited about an idea. Put all your effort behind it. Run up against a wall, then climb over it. Collaborate with new people. Make it work in a weekend.
Build invisible things.
Services aren’t tangible, and designing them is a challenge. You’ll get the chance to try new tools and approaches, and get help from top-notch mentors along the way.
- Ideate: Come up with a billion ideas and learn how to pick just the right one.
- Research: Talk to people and learn what they want.
- Prototyping: Build it. Make your idea real, through maps, visualisations and prototypes.
Who can jam?
Bigger than your job title?
Designers who can do more than their job titles demand design services. You’ll learn to take a broad approach and have a bigger impact.
Code is great, but it’s just one part of the puzzle. Learn how to use tech to make human-friendly value propositions.
Struggling to design your business?
Making something from nothing is scary. You’ll learn how to swim through ambiguity and make decisions your customers will love.
New to design-thinking?
Design is a powerful way to solve sticky problems and give your business strategic direction. You’ll skip the slides and theory, and learn by doing.
