“Ethical design is a commitment to creating products and experiences that enhance the well-being of all.” - Tim Brown
We are organizing a meetup on the occasion of World Interaction Design Day for the design community in Ahmedabad! This year we will be discussing Ethics, Equity & Responsibility in the context of design.
We have invited 3 speakers to share their perspectives on the subject-

#2 Technology Addiction & The Psychology of Engagement
Speaker- Moxxie Maximus (Senior UX Strategist at Paperclip Design), (30 mins)
Moxxie’s topic will be “Technology Addiction & The Psychology of Engagement" wherein she will dive into the interaction psychology behind social media apps such as Instagram, TikTok, and X, which drive record levels of engagement, and infamously enable addictive behavior and compare those to the engagement tactics used by applications like Duolingo and Brilliant which attempt to foster more meaningful, productive habits of learning. She means to explore how we as designers can consider the impact of designing an experience, taking into consideration the emotional health of our users just as highly as engagement metrics.
