The project

Hint is a concept for a new communications system in prisons. The research site is the Penitentiary Institution Vught. The system aims to give the lives of prisoners more content and to improve the reintegration process.


With hint, Chris Gruijters has managed to design an effective new system for an environment in which many restrictions prevail (the prison). Despite all the limitations, Gruijters succeeded in lending the system an attractive look.

— The idea is that this innovative communication system will increase the likelihood that when a prisoner is released, there will at least be someone waiting for him - Bas van Lier, Dutch Design Jaarboek, 2013
