    Would also suggest that this kind of "design" is created by marketeers who drive for conversions. That`s bad. A real UI/UX Designer wouldn't design like that and if so he is an asshole...

    Hey guys, just wanted to share a blog post from a mate which I find really interesting. Hope you like it too! :)

    BTW: What do you think about Dark Patterns?

      Personally, I don't think we should call them Dark Patterns. It's Asshole design. But that's just me...

        Well... I see this about an ethical debate... in my case, I also prefer to not use these kinds of tricks to pursue forced actions on users.

        On the other hand, they've proven to do their work well... although as mentioned before, it's using our power to put obstacles rather than solutions in the way which is the opposite definition of what design should be, under my opinion.

        Thanks for replying Yasen!

          Hey, no worries.

          Business driven design requires the obstacles, in order to achieve conversion, etc. But it doesn't make it any less asshole-ly... :))

        Well, I agree with you. Examples are given for the Dark pattern aren't Dark Patterns, those are basically bad UX. Dark Patterns are supposed to use in such a manner where UX should be compromised in less manner and to meet business goals as well.
