Travel booking in the age of the service economy
Recently we’ve been deepening our design sprint skills whilst working for flyiin, a start up co-founded by Marco. For those who don’t know flyiin yet: with it’s roots in the airline industry, the start up is pushing the boundaries of customer experience in flight booking.
