Defense Against Dark Patterns: Ethics & Interaction Design

3303 N Mississippi Ave
Portland, OR 97227, US (map)

Remotely is located on NE Mississippi. The event will take place on the 6th floor.



Dark Patterns are tricks used in websites and apps that make you buy or sign up for things that you didn't mean to. Designers and developers often abdicate our responsibility to remove deceptive patterns from design. In this talk, we'll explore some dark patterns, talk about how it parallels with older industry practices, and what we should do about before it's too late to fix.

We'll also use this as an opportunity to meet others working across interaction design disciplines.

If you're a long-time member of the interaction design community in Portland, find yourself new without a network, or simply want to talk about what's going on, here's your chance to get connected!
