A UX Glasgow Manifesto

Register Now

As lockdown is slowly lifted, we are going to create a collective UX Glasgow manifesto to envisage what we want to see from a post-coronavirus future.

The event will be led by the artist Rosanna Irvine, whose project Manifestos from times of Crisis brings together groups write a manifesto.

Here is our manifesto:

People make UX Glasgow. These are the things that are important to us as user centred designers:

  1. We design solutions to real problems for the benefit of all, not just a few.
  2. We demand sustainability first. We design for the planet as much as the user, and consider the local and global impact of our decisions.
  3. We believe in removing barriers both as professionals and as a community. We don’t disable people through our designs, and we ensure the outputs from our community are accessible to all.
  4. We believe in equality, empathy, and equity. We are open to all and everyone’s voice is included.
  5. We understand that technology is a tool that can be used for good or bad. We want to do good.
  6. We acknowledge that we don’t have all the answers – so we listen to people and consider the implications of our actions before crafting a solution.
