In our age of overconsumption and overstimulation, we need to talk about how the different aspects of our designs relate to human behavior. Carl Jung stated that “colors are the mother tongue of the subconscious” — tying colors directly to familiar deceptive design patterns driven purely by commercial agendas.

About thirty years ago, we as designers had clear ideals: we wanted to design beautiful and good things. Functional, aesthetic and preferably also a bit groundbreaking.
