Problem

Less than a third of young people express any interest in politics and social issues, according to an official survey. (BBC, 2014). Young people feel there is a lack of representation in societies problems and issues that they face. Current social media platforms feel overly "professional" or "catered for the older generation".

Young people need a channel for self expression and debate.

"Young people feel there is a lack of representation in societies problems and issues that they face."

ScribersHive is a unique platform with a social purpose; to empower young people (aged 16-30 years from BME (Black and minority ethnic) backgrounds to find their voice and be heard through writing and creative arts. This project will connect young people to social issues, topics, & stories that matter to them in a unique and interactive way.

 This project is inspired by challenging the negative perceptions of young people in the mainstream media through articles. Jahit Design aimed to create a digital platform for writing and creative arts as a tool to empower young people.

"Working closely with its project stakeholders, the design team aim was to produce a lightweight application with a focus on a medical card displaying crucial information."

Viewing articles in a full screen experience gives users better focus to absorb content properly. Young people are easily attracted to communicate with systems that are catered to centred focus content. The system additionally provided users to follow authors through a Swarm and Swarming interaction, similar to a following functionality we find in social media platforms.
