Leadership By Design 2023

Learn design leadership from the experts at Leadership by Design 2023.

Leadership By Design 2023 is an online 2-day conference focused on all aspects of design leadership.

On Thursday & Friday, September 14th & 15th, from where ever you are. We’ll have 2 days of stellar keynotes and focused design leadership presentations with thoughtful Q&A that allow you to gain a lot of insightful learning. In addition, each day has an uplifting interstitial that is sure to be refreshing and reinvigorating after deep content sessions.

We continue to provide a stage with inclusive continuing education that is great for our community. Don’t miss out–join us and expand your User Experience horizons–and don’t worry: we record the sessions so you can revisit them later.

And we’ll have swag! We’re partnering with Nerditees (again) to bring you some cool UX-themed gear. Stay tuned!

Each swag item purchased adds to our pool of “Need 1, Take 1” passes that are available to anyone who has a need–no questions asked.

Kevin Klos - Battling Deceptive Design: The Force is with You!

Deceptive design patterns are real and can create short term engagement and profits, but they also result in long-term pain for users and online experiences. This can leave users feeling tricked or cheated and can have a lasting impact for a brand.


UX Designers have the ability to influence a user through good design, or manipulate them through deceptive patterns, similar to how the Jedi and Sith have to decide how theyଁre using the Force. Weଁll discuss the top ten most deceptive design patterns and the negative impacts they have, as well as smart alternatives that can be used to benefit users, build trust, and make for better experiences.



More Sessions Coming Soon!
