About Grippa

grippa clip v5

The Design Against Crime Research Centre (DACRC) in partnership with the UCL Jill Dando Institute of Crime Science and in collaboration with Elisava school of design (Barcelona), worked with bars in London (JD Wetherspoon) and  bars in Barcelona (Glaciar and Horiginal) to assess the usability of the latest DAC bag hanging Grippa design prototypes, for both bar customers and staff. Four bag hanging objects and five graphic communication proposals were tested during the 2008-9 period in order to learn about the public responses to the designs, across the cultures of these two metropolitan cities. The results were intended to inform the final round of designs to be tested for their crime prevention effectiveness. This research forms part of the Grippa 2 crime prevention design evaluation project, funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council, 2006-2009.

In 2010-11 the latest version of the Grippa clips have been trialed , in collaboration with the Design Council and British Transport Police and a major cafe retailer, to date with very positive results.
