UX Dark Patterns and Ethical Design

May 8, 2019 - All

One area that has recently been in debate in regard to regulation are UX ‘Dark Patterns.’ In thispaper I will review what dark patterns are, why they exist, attempts and proposals for
regulation such as the recent DETOUR Act, and what regulatory methods may be employed in
the process. I will consider leadership in tech and the workforce with a focus on exploring how
designers might also include ethical evaluations in their process since the line must finally be
drawn between commercialism and infringement on user rights.
