live|work second Early Adopter review looks at WhipCar, the world’s first P2P car rental service.
Early Adopter is a new live|work service where we review services as they come to market. It is more an experiential thing than a detailed analysis. We hope it is useful and interesting.
Service Design cannot escape talking about experience and experiences. The current and future experiences of people – service customers, clients, users, patients, consumers, etc – are the context that service design works in.

If “Data is the New Oil”, the money is in refining it to create valuable services that we cannot live without. In this article, Ben Reason and Jeremy Walker from livework, discuss how data alone is not enough. They show how it is services that will make business information indispensible to organisations.
live|work believe that services grow by creating valuable and positive experiences for their customers – not through aggressive sales and expensive advertising. Recent research proves us right.
In this article, Ben Reason applies the core aspects of Service Thinking to healthcare.
Service Design is the application of established design process and skills to the development of services. It is a creative and practical way to improve existing services and innovate new ones.
An alternative to the dominant product mindset, Service Thinking places people, networks and sustainability at the core of how we design and innovate services. The application of Service Thinking can help transform our organisations and economies.
When Service Design and Service Thinking come together they enhance the value of services. They help strike a fair and beneficial relationship between provider and customer. Ultimately services can become a platform to create new value that is of benefit to all parties.
At live|work we create shared value for our clients and their customers. We call this value Service Equity.
