In order to address the issue of ATM crime the Design Against Crime Research Centre initiated the ‘Design Against ATM’ project in 2011 and set a brief supported by NCR to challenge design students at three significant design schools in different parts of the world. They were: Central Saint Martins College of Arts and Design,University of the Arts London; Delft University of Technology and University of Technology, Sydney. The challenge was, “can staff and students at these design institutions find new approaches to generating behaviour change as well as cost-effective solutions to help tackle ATM crime?” The design responses adopted what NCR talk about as the ‘multi layered approach’ to secure design and aim not just to design against crime but to catalyse behaviour change, and to find new ways to involve the public in helping to protect themselves.
