Represent

Represent (previously FLiP) is a web-based application that helps young people find jobs by taking advantage of their social networks.  I was brought in to help design and facilitate an insights workshop with Hackney Police Cadets aged 14-18. 

What:
Find a way to help reduce youth who commit crime from re-offending. 

So What:
Gather insights by running workshops, peer activities, and interviews with young people and other stakeholders who had a real interest in preventing youth crime.

Now What:
Common Ground Design, White October, and Ifita teamed up to produce the prototype of Represent. It was subsequently funded by NESTA and Bethnal Green Ventures, and is now a fully-functional project.
