Berlin | Workshop on Service design in a climate emergency — What do digital services in a world of net-zero look like?
Work, hobbies, family life, leisure, pleasure… Which activities from your present life would you like to keep doing? Which things would you like to never do again? Which would you want to start doing/do more of?
Keep: board games, sports such as soccer, volleyball, ping pong, bouldering, cooking with my flatmates, portrait drawing sessions, side projects…
Never again: pessimists, tax declaration, work for non-curious-clients
Start: skateboard, play saxophone, making more of the things I use every day such as clothes and furniture …

The small Ernesto, Ernestito, Tito. I am a 28-year-old German-Nicaraguan designer. I grew up bilingually in Hamburg, Berlin and Mexico City. Instead of going to high school I completed a graphic design apprenticeship at the Lette-Verein in Berlin. Towards the end of my apprenticeship, I discovered service design and realized I wanted to do more than just designing logos and posters. Since then I’ve shifted to a more holistic approach, studied interface design at the FH Potsdam, did the Basic Track at the D-School and worked at Fuxblau for 4.5 years, a service design agency in Berlin Schöneberg.
Great, now that you’ve made it easier for us to introduce you to the others – start to think about the topic and purpose of the event itself. Why do you want to participate in it? How do you feel the topic touches your work or life at the moment / in the future?
As a service designer working in the public sector, I am wondering how to make sure we think about the environmental impact from the start.
I am currently also doing a Master’s in Urban Futures — sustainability being one of the key elements.
