How to Design for User Trust
Trust is a fundamental driver of social interaction. Many of our earliest writing artifacts, including 4000-year-old Cuneiform tablets, are contracts recording an agreement between parties. Currencies from ancient times (and today) needed to be trusted in order to be fluidly exchangeable tokens of value. Since those earliest days, and extending on into the future, design has and will continue to have a major impact on trust, and is a major propellant of business, marriage, and ultimately on how the world agrees.
Our customer's trust in a product or service is crucial as it’s directly correlated to the value they place on it. In this Master Class, Lead Product Designer, David Hirotsu will expand on the importance of building user trust and how to design for it.
In this Master Class, you’ll learn:
- Why we as designers (UX, Product and Service designers) all have an enormous impact on user trust.
- Where your product or service might currently be eroding customers’ trust.
- Tips to build and maintain user trust over time.
- How to champion change internally against business practices that may be destroying user trust, which is ultimately bad for business.
This Master Class is for anyone interested in building products or services that are trusted, valued and loved by their customers.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why aren’t the Master Class webinars free of cost for members?
While the Master Class webinars aren’t free, they are open to both members and non-members of Interaction Design Foundation. While non-members pay $50 per webinar, members pay only $5. We charge this nominal fee to cover a few costs associated with producing the webinars, including:
The cost of using Zoom as our webinar partner. Zoom is one of the most reliable webinar hosting platforms, but it’s also one of the most expensive. We chose quality over affordability to bring you a better viewing experience, and the nominal fee we charge helps us cover these costs, without making the webinars expensive.
Along with the cost of Zoom, we also cover webinar costs associated with servers, payment gateways and code maintenance. In fact, 40 cents off every dollar in a transaction goes towards just the payment gateway alone!
Charging this small fee goes a long way in helping us cover these costs and enables us to continue to bring you high-quality content with the best experts.

I’m a member, but I cannot see all the Master Classes I purchased on my profile. How can I find the ones that are missing?
After each Master Class broadcast, our video editors painstakingly edit, improve and enhance the quality of these recordings to give you a better experience—but this process takes time, and that’s why there’s sometimes a delay in making them available within your profile.
Until recent Master Class recordings appear in your profile, you can always playback any of the Master Classes you’ve purchased using the Zoom recording links you received after the broadcast. Can’t find these recording links? Then please email firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
