Lilith Hasbeck

Service designer and graphic designer.
Welcome to my portfolio.

About me

My business card simplistically reads ‘service designer’. However, there’s more to me than that. I grew up in Denmark, and I’m currently based in London, where I’m finishing my postgraduate studies in Service Design at the Royal College of Art. If everything goes according to plan, I'll return to Copenhagen after graduating (with distinction), and I’m thus seeking new opportunities from mid-July onwards.

My background is in visual communication (graphic design) and co-design (design anthropology), and I’ve previously worked at Livework (an East London service design agency), Policy Lab (at the Cabinet Office), and MindLab (a cross-governmental innovation lab in Copenhagen). Within these different settings, I've worked with service design, design research, visual communication, and bits of policy design. Most of the work I've done reflects my passion for designing solutions for public or social problems.

Through my time of both studying and practicing service design, I've come to understand that building design cases on a holistic understanding of people, relationships, and systems is the most important aspect of my discipline. I find its interdisciplinary nature and the combination of strategy, business, and creativity very inspiring, and I most certainly feel that designers have a role in the future of designing not only things but also intangibles — such as services.

As a designer, I value leaving the desk to explore new contexts and meet new people. I thrive when people expect the most of me and when I can exchange knowledge and collaborate with people; preferably in an interdisciplinary (perhaps even post-disciplinary?) setting.

Say hello

In need of a designer? Comments? Questions? I’d be happy to hear from you whatever the reason. At the moment, I'm only available for work if the deadline is very flexible.

However, I'll be looking for new job opportunities from mid-July onwards (in Denmark, Northern Germany or Southern Sweden mainly), and am keen to hear from you if you have something opening up, or know of something that might be a good fit.
