My name is Alex, my target subculture is “Chilling youth” and for now my concept is called the reconnector. It will connect chilling youth from different city’s and help them reconnect with the future.
And the RECONNECTOR Chilling youth 0519490 presents RECONNECTOR CHILLING YOUTH
Multicultural chilling youth RECONNECTOR CHILLING YOUTH I’m not here to discus what is a subculture or to defend if my “Chilling youth” is a subculture or not . It is a group of young people (13-23 years) and my focus within this group is the wonderful thing of multicultural bonding. Cultural background and differences is overcome on the street. I see this as a spark of hope for the future.
"Veel hangjongeren hebben geen kwaad in de zin." RECONNECTOR CHILLING YOUTH And as I want to do something meaningful in my life and as a designer. I want to design meaningful products, solving problems is meaningful. So this brings me back to my subculture. The fact is that there is a problem. They find it difficult to find ambition and something meaningful for them and society. This often results in on the street anti-social and criminal behaviour. Chilling youth and their problem Youth of Rotterdam “ Most of the chilling youth have no bad intention”
It’s not a product It’s a commitment RECONNECTOR CHILLING YOUTH I see my product not merely as a product, but as a commitment. This will give restrictions but most of all a focus. A focus on innovation and the future. Focus On human and social progress prior to commercial and financial gain. Their Thought will be our future Youth
