Spiral Scout we're hiring

Dark Patterns

A Dark Pattern is a user interface that has been carefully crafted to trick users into doing things, such as buying insurance with their purchase or signing up for recurring bills. SpiralScout was responsible for re-building the old Dark Patterns web-site and putting it on a new CMS platform.

Our solution

We worked closely with Harry Brignull to define the goals of the new website. We knew that the site needed to be updated so it displayed beautifully on all devices. It also needed a way for visitors to upload dark pattern examples they had found online with the site's admin. The admin could then publicize the design patterns that were submitted and met the requirements of being a dark pattern.
