dc.description.abstract The maker culture consists of people referred to as “makers”, who are designing and building physical objects and intangible services through experimentation, innovation and knowledge sharing. This culture is thought to spur innovation and function as a catalyst to materialize the promise of the so-called new industrial revolution. Maker activities are centered on the projects they make. Makers use various digital services to show their work and exchange knowledge. This thesis investigates what kind of digital services makers use when working with their projects. It describes a process of designing through research a new digital service that could complement their existing digital ecosystems. The methodology used is participatory design and iterative software development. Expert interviews and co-design sessions with makers are used to create design directions for a digital service prototype for maker projects. The implemented prototype is then evaluated and re-designed to further develop a beta version. The designed and implemented digital service is a production that is made in collaboration with Koert Jobse. en
