Current tools and techniques used in everyday design practice are focused on managing the complex information of service systems primarily through visualization. The visual in methods has become a dominant norm prevalent in service design practice. In wanting to counteract the emphasis on visualization, we direct attention to qualities of sound in natural and structured form. This conceptual paper offers two important contributions. First, we propose sound as an alternative representation medium to augment design tools and methods. Second, since sound as representation is an under-explored concept, we suggest a conceptual framework. The conceptual framework introduces an understanding of sound as persistent or performative. As such, it serves as a starting point to guide the exploration of sound as a medium of representation in service design, in a way that complements existing tools and methods.
