ABOUT THE TALK
We’ve all fallen victim to deceptive design at some point—whether it was that time we struggled to unsubscribe from a service we didn’t want anymore, or when accidentally clicking on that pop-up ad led us down a rabbit hole of frustration.

From the simply annoying to the outright egregious, dark patterns—coined by Harry Brignull nearly a decade ago—intentionally trick us into doing things we don’t really want to do.

But what makes these pesky patterns so effective in the first place? And how can we wield our influence as UXers to make the web—and, as a result, the world—a slightly better place?

ABOUT THE SPEAKER — VIDHIKA BANSAL
Vidhika firmly believes design should be about people first and technology second. She’s a strong advocate for data-informed design, being content-first, and using behavioral science to fuel better product and service experiences.

Over the last decade, Vidhika has helped shape brand, product and design strategies for clients such as Hilton, 23andMe, Gap Inc., Facebook, PwC, NASDAQ, and C-SPAN. Now, she aligns cross-functional teams at CARFAX to build B2B and B2C solutions that meet both business goals and people’s real, often unarticulated needs.

When not obsessing about UX, she can be found giving in to her insatiable sweet tooth, globetrotting, or discovering her new favorite song.
