Student Narrative

Countering Design Crimes is a guide for identifying and thwarting hostile design. It breaks down what hostile design is and why it's harmful, and provides a few possible solutions. While many of these solutions are generally impractical. The goal of this guide is to inspire the reader to think more deeply about the choices designers make when creating our environments.
