Bei Tai is a developing service designer and product designer who is currently advancing his studies at the Royal College of Art. He graduated from Miami University with a bachelor's degree in Interactive Media Studies back in 2019 and has experience in various industries, from retail to technology.
In his words, "With the heart of a creator, the mind of a problem solver, and the soul of an artist, I made the choice to become a product and service designer. I craft innovative solutions that meet the needs of users and enrich their experiences. I believe that design should not only be beautiful but also functional and intuitive. My ambition is to craft designs that are centered around the people and touch both the heart and mind."
Our partner Oasis is on a difficult journey to reform the youth justice system by opening their first Secure School, an alternative to the current Young Offender Institutes. Their success will be measured by the reduction rate of reoffending after walk out. We believe that the key to mitigate reoffending is in successful rehabilitation in the community. Project Become is a progress tracker to be used by the Oasis Secure School.
Become is based on our hypothesis that tracking the kids progress through the positive behaviour framework of COM-B and making it visible to the children will boost their transformation. This progress must be compiled into a portfolio containing a resume of skills, recommendations from staff and peers, and a profile written by themselves, which will help them reintegrate back into society and help society to be more accepting.
