302: Designing Dark Patterns

June 26, 2019

This week, inspired by a tweet from Daniel Burka, we tackle the thorny but important question of who is ultimately accountable for the implementation of a product's dark patterns. Is Design responsible? Engineering? Leadership? All of the above? In Listener Questions, we answer how to design on an iPad and how to apply an even grid to an odd screen. And as always, we share a couple cool things like some SVG icons and a modded Apple TV remote.


Listener Questions:

  • Anonymous asks how to design on an iPad
  • Kevin Haag asks how to apply the 8pt grid when a device's screen width doesn't fit the grid exactly
    • Answer: Just measure from the screen edges :)
