How Long Is NOW? Part 1.618 by John Hoffman: Innovation Team Leader John Hoffman Design. >
As we all know, Sustainability equals logic and Sustainability is pragmatic. Nevermore have manufacturers been focused on long term environmental effects and are making efforts to reduce, reuse, and recycle, as is this Designer. Rising energy and raw material costs can make these eco-friendly initiatives appealing because true Sustainability makes for a strong business model and Earth consciousness. Yet there are several hurdles integrating these systems and implementing a paradigm shift. Wholeheartedly, we know that the definition Sustainability states that we need to make products to meet the needs of the present, without compromising the needs of future generations. How do we remake the current systems and capture the Green on The Green?
The breakdown for reuse, that is just it! Logically we have to Innovate and reinvent the current Systems. JH's Awakened Innovation is pushing those boundaries and reinventing the current cycle. The goal being to:
Maximize Outcomes: Pushing the current limits of materials and resources.
Increasing Efficiencies: Including raw materials, energy, technology and an ever widening scope.
Delivering Strong Outcomes: Minimizing upfront capital, relieving the burden 30 years from now.
HOW LONG IS NOW?
TEQ maximizes the use of renewable or recycled materials when solving medical device packaging objectives. We are delivering the materials to the recyclable waste stream for re-use. The systems we are providing for recyclable products. Logical design and integrated solutions are generated from TEQ and its partners healthy in all end-of-life scenarios. TEQ delivers systems to effectively recover and utilize industrial and/or earthly cradle-to-cradle cycles.

As the renowned Industrial Designer Jim Orr professes, “Drawing well, is a product of thinking well. Dare to be great!” Creating great Design and Art is best achieved when there is a firm foundation, mathematical principles and inspiration. Great Art / Design is achieved not only when you know how and why the fundamentals are what they are, but when you also know how to problem solve.
