Free Online Workshop: Frustrating Design Patterns And How To Fix Them


Disabled buttons. Infinite scroll. Poor inline validation. Parallax. Carousels. Modals. Mega-dropdown hover menus. There is plenty of frustration on the web. Let’s fix that. Join us for a free online workshop on Frustrating Design Patterns on Monday, September 27 at 9:00 AM PDT / 6PM CET.

In the 2.5h live session we’ll take a close look at some of the confusing and annoying patterns and explore better alternatives alongside plenty of examples and checklists to keep in mind when building or designing one. You’ll walk away with a toolbox of techniques and examples of doing things well — in your product, website, desktop app or mobile app.

We’ll look into carousels, modals, infinite scroll, parallax and scrolljacking, mega-dropdown menus, disabled buttons, inline validation, frozen filters, CAPTCHA, authentication and privacy. Register for the free workshop.

Free online workshop on Frustrating Design Patterns in 2021, and How To Fix Them.
