Designing out crime poses many challenges for the design profession. Designers need to be far more creative than criminals. The design dilemma is how to design objects, services, and environments that address both users and abusers, without making them look ‘criminal’.

The research projects attempt to think abuser as well as user and to ‘…help designers keep up with the adaptive criminal in a changing world’ (Ekblom 1997).
