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.

Niaje! Introducing Maina

hr { margin: 3em 0; } I’m Maina, and I'm excited to start out at as a Senior Fellow at Simply Secure. Prior to this fellowship, I conducted research at the Center for Advanced Security Research Darmstadt, and the Technische Universität Darmstadt. Using both quantitative and qualitative research methods, I focused on the usability of verification in Helios, an end-to-end verifiable, open-source, remote electronic voting system. Previously, I taught several undergraduate courses, including human computer interaction and computer security.

What's next for 'Simply Secure'? Part 1: Revisiting our name and identity

We asked our community what they think of the name "Simply Secure" and our cheerful aesthetic. Here's what we found out.
