    – What are the benefits for the client/team/product

  • Thomas Villain: Un design équitable

    Thomas Villain: Un design équitable

    WordCamp Bordeaux 2019Speaker: Thomas Villain

    June 3, 2019 — Quelle serait la place du designer, du concepteur ou de l’agence web dans une société de non-consommation ?

    Dans quelle mesure peut-on respecter son éthique personnelle ?

    Un design équitable, ce serait d’abord être équitable envers soi-même : démystifier la vie de l’entrepreneur au boulot 24h/24 et la croissance à tout prix, choisir ses clients, savoir dire non, trouver son rythme et l’harmonie.

    Un design équitable ce serait aussi être équitable envers les autres : être inclusif, penser accessiblité, pouvoir adapter ses tarifs, donner de son temps ou partager son savoir, et apprendre à travailler/coopérer avec les autres.

    Un design équitable ce serait enfin utiliser des outils équitables : éviter le syndrôme du mouton google-addict, privilégier les alternatives respectueuses de l’humain et moins aveuglément consuméristes.

  • Raphaël Yharrassarry: Du design de l’attention à l’éthique du designer

    Raphaël Yharrassarry: Du design de l’attention à l’éthique du designer

    WordCamp Bordeaux 2019Speaker: Raphaël Yharrassarry

    June 3, 2019 — Quand je conçois une page, un service, je vais faire attention aux besoins des utilisateurs, à leurs capacités cognitives. Je vais les guider dans le parcours que j’estime pertinent pour eux. Je vais attirer à leur attention vers certains éléments, la détourner d’autres éléments que je juge secondaire. Je peux jouer avec différents biais cognitifs pour arriver à mes fins.

    En allant plus loin, je peux mettre en place une stratégie pour que les utilisateurs adoptent librement certains comportements, voir créer de l’addiction, que se soit numérique ou dans la vie réelle. Ces comportements peuvent être vertueux ou justes servir les intérêts d’une entreprise.

    Quand est-ce que, moi, designer je passe la ligne rouge ? Quelles règles je me fixe ou pas ? Il existe des codes de conduites comme celui de l’UXPA, mais concrètement ça donne quoi quand on essaye de l’appliquer dans la vraie vie ?
