What is ethics in design and do we need it? Design has a huge influence on how people live their lives and the human experience. Bad design not only results in bad design but also how people live. As this influence grows do designers need to build ethics into design? What would be the impact if we did? Join us as we discuss this with author, design researcher, and facilitator, Thomas Wendt.
Thomas Wendt is an author, design researcher, and facilitator. His client work focuses on helping organizations learn more about their customers/users/audience through qualitative research methods such as ethnography, co-design, and collaborative workshops. He has also written two books on the politics and philosophy of design, along with numerous articles and conference presentations.
