About the Session

We are surrounded by bad interfaces – on our way to work, inside our homes, on the palm of our hand, they are everywhere.

But we, designers, take pride in creating smooth, enjoyable experiences and interfaces for our customers and users and would never create such poorly designed systems… Or would we? Is it possible to find a certain joy in doing the wrong thing?

This fun talk takes a look at real cases and catastrophes caused by flawed interfaces, and absurd, mean or just downright bad designs for common objects and systems. As a takeaway, we’ll learn a few tips to keep in mind while doing our (good) job and leave these bad interfaces behind.

In case of doubt, what would Darth Vader do?
