Ethics by Design 2020


Last week, with Noémie, we had the chance to attend the Ethics by Design conferences. Given the current context, you will suspect that this 2020 edition took place online...

We were able to attend a wide variety of presentations. For example, the presentation of the Fairphone by Agnès Crépet and Alix Dodu, an explanation of the Systemic Design Toolkit by Sabrina Tarquini or the speech of the philosopher Tony Fry on economy and design.

What I liked best was the interactive format with students. Indeed, some students with different backgrounds explained how they defined their future profession as a designer and why they had moved towards an ethical approach. I found these interventions very spontaneous and enriching.

I also loved Célia Hodent's talk about dark patterns in video games. Her presentation was captivating because she engaged with the audience through small memory games and gave many concrete examples.

It was very interesting and I advise you to follow closely the association of "Designers éthiques", which rethinks the design of tomorrow.
