Dark Patterns

The Dark Patterns website is dedicated to bringing shameful examples of online trickery to light, specifically “dark patterns”. Dark patterns describe a user interface that has been cleverly and carefully crafted to mislead users into doing things, such as buying insurance with their purchase or signing up for recurring bills.

What did the customer need?

Dark Patterns website founder, Harry Brignull, wanted to rebuild his existing Dark Patterns website and move it to an updated content management system so he could add and edit content more easily. He needed a CMS website design and development company in the U.S. that could update his site and make it possible for his site visitors to upload and submit the dark patterns they found out on the web for publishing.

What was our approach?

The Spiral Scout team started by working closely with Harry to define the goals of his new website, including making it responsive, more user-focused and better for search engine optimization. In addition to updating the user interface to be more mobile-friendly, we also facilitated a CMS content migration that helped move over the rich content Harry already had and allow for users to share their own dark pattern examples.
