Yesterday we had an incredibly interesting and enlightening session in our Slack channel with special guest Erin Hoffman-John (Chief Designer and cofounder of Sense of Wonder). We were talking about the relationship between authority and design.
Erin captivated us as she dug into how the design choices we make impact our users (and in her case, players) and how we need to be careful about identifying (and avoiding) hidden biases. We talked about the issues of ethics and inclusivity — and how they should and shouldn’t dictate our work.
Erin was a star. The session was fun and fast moving and we learned a lot!
