Battling the Darkside, Dark UX


Internal battles of dark and light UX commence this month at Sandbox.

Simple choices often lead companies down a dark path of total customer ownership. [Insert evil laugh] This viral affliction can catch even the most ardent User Experience expert off guard, setting us up for long sleepless nights of what-ifs and trips to the psychiatrist.

Join us this month for a contrasts workshop exploring the light and dark side of human-centered design. Common human traits will be exploited based on guidance from marketing and business goals.

Laptops can be used.
