Bad Design Advice

A session at Interaction14

Friday 7th February, 2014

2:00pm to 2:00pm (AMT)

User experience design can be quite challenging, and it’s tempting to both give and receive advice to help make it just a little bit easier so we can keep on doing it again. Sometimes there’s good advice, sometimes there’s bad advice, and sometimes there’s bad advice masquerading as good advice. Here are a few in the last category with an explanation as to why they’re bad and what lessons we’ve really learned from them.

Paolo is currently leading the Advanced UX Design studio for Mercedes-Benz and has worked for a wide range of technology companies in various design roles over 18+ years including Zynga, Xbox, and Oracle.

Scott is a best-selling author and speaker. His latest book is "The Year Without Pants", a behind-the-scenes look at the firm behind WordPress.com and the unique work culture that contributes to its phenomenal success.
