A linkshow. James and Per discuss two articles they’ve stumbled on. This time we feature articles about how certain features of e-commerce sites have to go, and how a design mistake impacted civic engagement in Iceland.

Article one is The lazy load, endless scroll, and color slicing have to go by Bethany Sadler-Jasmin.

“UX Designers have a unique opportunity to create safe havens online where we can help reduce some of that [cognitive] load or even eliminate it altogether. But more often than not, we inadvertently add to it instead.”  

Article two is How do you accidentally run for president of Iceland? by Anna Andersen.

“Many of these [82] people are seriously vying for president (yep, my aunt Helga), some of them have undoubtedly signed up as a joke (nope, not the comedian), and at least 11 of them accidentally registered and had no idea that they were collecting endorsements for their candidacy.”

Nathan Shedroff, author of A Whole New Strategy, talks to us about how we as designers can have strategic impact. Through an expanded understanding of the context you are working within, and building both situational and operational awareness, we can bridge the gap between design and business.

We look at how some of the “special skills” we have as designers put us in a position to help drive conversations about the strategic, societal and environmental impact of our work.

“Everything about context, everything about markets, including customers, and competitors, etc. It’s all about situational awareness, what’s the situation we’re in so that we can understand how to act? And then operational awareness is all about, like, how do things work? How prepared are we? What do we need to be successful to operate?”

We talk about IKEA and The Wizard of Oz, labyrinths and mazes. The use of colour to craft a narrative within larger experiences. The importance of pace, and that sometimes a challenge is good for the experience.

“[Seven] is a beautiful number. It’s a prime number, it has an elegance within the sequence from one to ten. That’s very attractive. And of course, people can remember seven things, not me anymore.”

Maria Giudice joins us to talk about being changemakers – How we can design change in a complex world. We start by looking at the history of change management and how we are now firmly in the age of design-driven change and that requires change leadership.

We look at change making and understanding different types of people’s reactions and how to engage those who have different attitudes towards change. All of this in the context of organisations where leadership buy-in and cultural readiness are crucial for success

“As long as the human race has existed, we’ve adapted as human beings. We’ve tried and failed and adapted. All of that is change. It’s fundamental to who we are.”

“Our job as researchers is not to just say, ‘I have a question that I want to ask you and you have to answer it’, we have to shepherd the team through a moment of reflection, where they really think deeply about something, they think deeply about a story, how somebody describes that space, how we pulled together everybody’s data, to then create structures to describe that space.”

Carol Smith leads the Trust Lab team at Carnagie Mellon Universty, where they conduct research into making trustworthy, human centered, and responsible AI systems. Our conversation highlights the importance of guardrails and ethical considerations in AI development, as well as to ask the right questions and to be critical of the work we are doing – in order to make the best systems we can for the people who are using them or who will be affected by them.

“If the system is providing the right kind of evidence of how it’s making decisions, how it’s making recommendations, if it is a situation where the people understand the capabilities of that system in that particular context, and also know what the edges are – it can’t handle this type of situation, or it will perform poorly in this type of situation – then they can begin to build what is called calibrated trust. “
