Abstract

As designers we often navigate through heavy seas of uncertainty and complexity in a continuous zooming from systems to pixels. In this context, design decisions could impact on a scale that goes from people to society. In Tangible we asked ourselves what we could do for leading conversations within our team and with stakeholders about those implications so that both are aware of threats or blind spots that could impact our designs.
The Ethical Design Compass is a lightweight tool that we designed for enabling teams to map, monitor and take in charge any issue that we can steer such as inclusion, accessibility, agency, trust and safety.
