In further understanding Human-Centered Design, it became important to adequately define the nuances between different design practices. Within the Customer Management Practice, there are four distinct events, Digital Product, Service Design, Design Thinking, and Experience Design, pressing the imperative to identify differences and similarities between them.

However, we wanted to explore further how these functions work together in teams that incorporated all specialties. What is the broader definition of design? What did the intersection of service design, UX, and experience design look like “in real life?”
