The Shadow Side of Human Centered Design

Mar 9, 2018 |


When it comes to talking about human-centered design, intentions are typically good. We seek positive results by designing meaningfully and deliberately, but sometimes even the most well-intentioned strategies darken, and take turns for the worse.

Human-centered designers intend to design for the whole human experience, but tend not to. Dr. Melis Senova, who has been running her award-winning firm Huddle for the last eight years, discusses the repressed or suppressed part of the design landscape and invites attendees to join her in an exploration of the practice that is sure to leave participants with their perspectives challenged.

Dr. Senova has a Ph.D. in Human Centered Design, is a published neuroscientist, author of This Human, and runs her strategic design firm Huddle.
