Back by popular demand, the DB Innovation Group return with their Dark Patterns user experience (UX) design workshop!
How many times have you tried to unsubscribe from a mailing list or tried to de-activate your account on a website/app and found it painful or close to impossible?
In UX design, this experience is called a ‘Dark Pattern’.
A Dark Pattern is a practice of interface design that supports the business’ needs at the expense of the user’s experience. Colloquially, Dark Patterns are referred to as using UX for evil.
This workshop will show you:
- how to recognise Dark Patterns
- how to understand how Dark Patterns influence users
- how businesses (such as big tech giants) use Dark Patterns to drive desired behaviour
- how to avoid designing Dark Patterns.
This will be an interactive and practical workshop, so come with your thinking hats on!
