Accessibility and inclusive design is something we’ve regularly mentioned during the years, but we’ve never had a dedicated show about accessibility in general. We talk about what accessibility means for UX designers and what you can, and should do to make the websites and apps you design more accessible and inclusive.
We talk to Joe Leech about psychology for designers and bullshit science. We debunk some myths and “rules” that come across as truths.
How do you construct an argument with facts rather than fiction? How do we validate our data inputs and build confidence in our designs and decisions?
We get into the ethics of both research and design patterns as well as testing hypothesis and “the scientific method”. Are you going to freak your organisation out? We’re always looking for a quick fix, but it really isn’t that easy.

Jesper Åström joined us in Episode 39 for a chat at Clarion Sign Hotel in Stockholm. Jesper is is currently writing a series of 100 guest blog posts in 100 days. A crazy challenge. One of the posts so far was about “workers, commentators and spectators” where Jesper outlined the 1-9-90 method and gave some examples. We discuss the method aswell as the use of data and “dark patterns” in increasing engagement and acheiving results. Plus a bit about Jesper’s background during 15 years in the business.(Listening time: 38 minutes)
