The Danish Design School has invited Chris Hacker, Chief Design Officer at Johnson & Johnson to give a talk about design thinking and sustainable design
In 2010-11 The Danish Design School worked together with Johnson & Johnson to develop new welfare designs where innovative research and design improve life for patients with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease and their relatives. The international pharmaceutical company Johnson & Johnson was a key partner in a project where students from The Danish Design School used design to promote understanding of dementia.
Now Chris Hacker, Chief Design Officer at Johnson & Johnson will visit the school and give a talk about design thinking and sustainable design.

Companies have choices when they make products; they can make them the same way they have always made them, or they can work to make them more sustainable. Chris will talk about how his company works to make each project a step in the right direction. He will also talk about the responsibility that designers have to make a difference in the organizations in which they work, with the goal of making the world a better place.
Chris leads all creative processes for brand identity, product & packaging design and brand imagery at Johnson & Johnson. The Global Strategic Design Office is based in New York City with branch offices globally, to further the application of strategic design thinking within the company and consists of designers, engineers and technical staff.
