More on this later, but I wanted to jot down this framework:
Service design aims to get three things right:
- Continuity: ensure the whole experience is designed without thoughtless gaps at any unconsidered moment where the customer is confused, frustrated or unserved.
- Consistency: design the experience to maximize familiarity and “learn once, use often.”
- Climax: build memorable and differentiating highlights into the experience that make it special to the customer.
