Using Design Justice Practices to Co-design With Your Users
Popular wisdom says that involving our users in design decisions leads to a "design by committee" approach that waters down the end result and balloons the design budget. However, content strategy and user experience design disciplines show that incorporating users' input leads to web products that are effective and easy to use.
Additionally, in these times of unprecedented crises, we as designers and developers are seeking out ways we can use our skills to better the world.
Design Justice offers a framework to design with our users and root our practice in principles that ensure what we build is ethical, heals the planet and promotes our well-being.
Participants will leave the session knowing the history of design justice, its principles and practical ways to apply design justice in the discovery and design process, including: user interviews, persona workshops, and user journey mapping.
