White Hat UX

Most things in life come with a dark side. For years, the online space has acted as a playground for thieves, bandits and murky types who will use every trick in the book to make you do the opposite of what you set out to do. But there is hope. The next generation in user experience is coming.

Small websites are not the only ones tempted by the dark forces. Many of the world’s largest brands make use of dark patterns - some do so because of ignorance, while others lack the courage to admit their wrong doings. White Hat UX focuses on creating unique user experiences without a dark side. Leave the dark side and read the book. It is filled with inspiration to free yourself from the dark forces and join the next generation in user experience – White Hat UX.

136 pages. Written by Trine Falbe, Kim Andersen, Martin Michael Frederiksen. eBook. Late 2017.

White Hat UX starts by defining UX — done in a straightforward way that allows people with limited UX knowledge to gain a clear understanding of the field.
