The Shadow Side of Human Centered Design

The Shadow Side of Human Centered Design
Recording: The Shadow Side of Human Centered Design, Mar 9, 2018


Dr Melis Senova


As designers, our intentions are typically good: we seek positive outcomes of our work, but sometimes even the most well-intentioned strategies darken. Dr Melis Senova invites the audience to explore aspects of the practice often not discussed. She will draw parallels between the concerns of Victor Papanek, a design scholar who holds designers accountable for their contribution to society and Ted Kacynzki, a person motivated to do terrible acts in response to similar societal concerns.
