Keeping this brief.

  1. Don’t design shady experiences.
    If your company pushes you to design shady experiences to “balance with business objectives”, your company is shady. You should look for a less shady place to work.
  2. Design for people different than you.
    People who are not just like you will use your product. Test your designs with a variety of people who aren’t like you.

Start there.
