“White Hat UX: The Next Generation in User Experience” is the name of a book by +Trine Falbe Larsen, Kim Andersen and +Martin Frederiksen and I think you should read it.

At first I was a bit sceptical about the basic concept of white/grey/black hatted user experience design, especially the grey part. I see UX more like a sliding scale where nothing is all white or all dark side (like in Star Wars), perhaps more like fifty shades of grey. When you are out to persuade people or sell stuff there is usually some elements of ‘manipulation’ involved, especially in digital where so many patterns, cowboy tricks and techniques exist related to these topics.

I’m pretty familiar with the definitions of black and white hats within hacking and SEO, but after I then read Wikipedias definition of “Grey Hat” I can see how the metaphor of the hats makes sense as a way of thinking about ones approach to UX. The articles states https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grey_hat : “The term "grey hat" refers to a computer hacker or computer security expert who may sometimes violate laws or typical ethical standards, but does not have the malicious intent typical of a black hat hacker.”

Often grey patterns emerge from bad design choices og just plain old stupidity, but a basic awareness of the good and bad practices can help make things better. And this is exactly what this book does. It has some good (meaning bad) examples of dark patterns in UX, there is a good chapter on “UX gone wrong” and several dedicated to describing good practices in UX, testing, evaluation etc. Most of it feels like introductions rather than how-to material but the book is a solid starting point for further reading and hopefully concrete action.

For a limited time you can grab a free copy of the book on Amazon:
