Sebastian Greger
Critical Interaction Designer

I love digital services; the web in particular.

I practice design that serves real people, instead of "user" stereotypes.

I advocate human-centred, open, respectful, privacy-aware technology.

I am a sociologist and interaction designer

Training

I provide training, on "non-user"-centred design, privacy-aware web design, and holistic usability.

Consulting

I assist your project, with solutions and strategies for human-centred (UX/user) research and service design.

A constructively critical approach to interaction design

Critical Interaction Design aims to improve interactive tech­no­logy by scruti­nizing main­stream trends and their impact on people and society — for human-centred digital design

Deeply enthusiastic about the potential of digital technology, the core proposition of this approach is a thorough understanding of social context and values to inform interaction design, under holistic consideration of technology's impact on individuals and society.

The goal is to develop, promote and utilize approaches, methods and tools that integrate easily neglected aspects like

  • user value,
  • social use experience and life context,
  • conceptual usability, and
  • data ownership and privacy,

with traditional user-centred design.

The wide range of topics covered by a critical attitude toward current developments in interaction design are presented on this website and blog:
