Mark Simpkins

Technical Consultant, Central St Martins School Of Art

Mark Simpkins is a technical consultant for the Design Against Crime initiative, based at Central St Martins College of Art and Design. He has advised them on the use of social software tools in design-led practice in both the collation of evidence as well as integration into actual design solutions. The first project was Bike Off, a site dealing with bike parking facilities, used to collect anecdotal evidence on the quality of facilities for research into bike theft. Based on principals initially developed for, the project is pre-populating a weblog framework with information (in this case photographs of bike parking facilities), and inviting the community to comment upon this information. The results from this site will be fed back into students' design projects, as well as future evolutions of the site.
