Design an interactive experience for the 2021 Dundee Design Festival that educates the visitors about an aspect of design.

Response

Focusing on the more sinister side of design, I worked with game developers, Innes White and Neve O'Neill, to create two games that educated the users about the design psychology behind dark patterns - manipulative user interfaces that trick you into doing something that you don't necessarily want to do. The games focus on confirmshaming and infinite scrolling in hopes of educating the user so that they are less likely to succumb to these dark patterns in the future.
