Uğur Altun’s illustration for ATÖLYE’s Medium article titled, “How an unexpected alliance between Service Design and Business Design can help design better services” summorizes the whole story with details in one image.

It takes certain craftsmanship to successfully complete an origami in one shot. Usually making origami is a try and fail process. Especially if people are collaborating it becomes a creative learning process for all. ATÖLYE’s new educational platform Akademi aims for such collective and experimental collaborations. Ece Ağırtmış illustrates the article where these collaborations are explained with a twist: Do you notice that the origami making duo is also inside a paper? Ece reminds us that both the origami and the process of making it are subjected to a trial and error method.
