Trust & Responsibility 'Tea Time': New video series with World Interaction Design Day exploring design and trust

Trust & Responsibility Tea Time Header

How do we design for trust? What is our responsibility as designers?

These questions have been popping up in the global design conversation lately, and not a moment too soon. This year, Adobe and IxDA have named Trust and Responsibility as the theme for World Interaction Design Day (IxDD) 2019.

World Interaction Design Day Banner We at Simply Secure couldn’t be more delighted: our mission is to practice and support responsible design, and IxDD is an opportunity for designers around the world to organize events and start discussions around how we, the design community, need to frame our mission, our philosophy, and our craft. Not only do we grapple with these questions in our daily work, we’re also confronted with them on a larger scale whenever we read or listen to the news.

So, as we approach IxDD this September, we wanted to share how we at Simply Secure grapple with some of the most complex topics designers face. In this series of video shorts, we’re inviting you into our living room for a cup of our favorite beverage. We’ll be sharing more of our research and resources over the course of the summer. But for now, please accept our invitation to set your work down for a moment and put the kettle on – it’s tea time.

Some Of Our 2015 Favorites

2015 was our first full year in operation, and we’ve come a long way! Looking back at the past twelve months, here are some resources that we’ve found to be particularly useful (or entertaining). Let us know your favorites on Twitter! Ame’s picks Thinking back on 2015, I’m really glad to be part of Simply Secure and for the opportunity to be an evangelist for design. I’m thankful for resources that make design easier.

Dia dhaoibh, mise Nóirín!

Hi, I'm Nóirín (sounds like [n̪ˠõːɾʲiːɲ]). In Ireland, I have a pretty common name: I share it with professors, politicians, and even our police commissioner! Elsewhere, however, it's less simple. I've had conference badges in the names of "N√≥ir√≠n" and "NÛirÌn", online services often call me "Nóirín" or "N��ir��n", and I've even gotten mail for "N├âãÆ├é┬│ir├âãÆ├é┬¡n"! So at Simply Secure, I go by a name I picked up on the Appalachian Trail, that's found in most spell-checkers, and is a bit simpler to pronounce: Trouble.

Trust & User Needs

Meeting users' needs is an authentic way to contribute to developing trust. Eileen and Molly discuss in this episode of Tea Time.
