Critical UX: Challenging the Dogma of UX
We just hosted our Spring we-aint-afraid-to-go-there Critical UX event and panelists where we grappled with design’s potential for real and lasting change by going back to the basics and challenging the dogma of UX. Grab the recording, additional resources, and more today!
Engage in thought-provoking events featuring some of the most boundary-pushing voices in the Design and Tech industry. These aren’t your average events and we welcome the opportunity to push the boundaries with we-ain't-afraid-to-go-there topics.

Like many of the folks that come through HmntyCntrd, Vivianne's toxic workplace experiences revealed a deeper desire to experience something different. Her experience taught her that the UX and Tech industries badly need disruption and that she wasn't alone in feeling burnt out, alone, and frustrated with the lack of care towards employees and customers.
In less than one year into its existence, HmntyCntrd was named one of FastCompany’s 2021 Top 10 Most Innovative Design Companies (fun fact: word-of-mouth about the impact and quality of our work led FastCompany to seek us out and extend this award to HmntyCntrd!).
Now, HmntyCntrd is proud to serve thousands of professionals across a variety of industries and companies, including the hundreds of professionals in our private community representing at least 22 countries!
The corporate playbooks used to combat organizational trauma (and why they're not enough).
If UX is all about empathy and caring about users, why don’t we care for ourselves the same way?
For an industry that prides itself on being experts in valuing and understanding people, it never ceases to amaze how much we talk about empathy & human-centered design in comparison to how little we talk about the challenging personal work necessary to achieve it.
