The Imagination Factory is a team of designers and creative engineers applying Resource-Conscious Design on a daily basis.

We have also been trained to facilitate innovation workshops which we have delivered for leading organisations around the world.

  • Interactive sessions to learn and apply techniques
  • 8 to 16 people from your team will be guided through learning and working together
  • Knowledge sharing from our experts in circular product design
  • Evaluation of your products live in the workshop

Who should attend?

The Resource-Conscious Design workshop brings together people from multi-disciplinary backgrounds within your organisation so that a shared understanding can be achieved.

This can include designers, engineers, marketing, product developers, R&D, strategy and sustainability leads.

Discover tools and techniques for circular product design.

We believe that designers commit the Earth’s resources to their creations, the moment they put pen to paper, and it is said that 80% of a product’s environmental impact is decided at the concept stage. 

With this as our driving force, we are looking for design-led businesses, interested in improving their sustainability strategies, to join us as we seek to bring to market more products designed with the end in mind.

What's the cost and what's included?

  • The workshop has a fixed cost and works best with 8-16 participants - contact Mark for details.
  • All materials and preparation before the workshop are included.
  • We can facilitate workshops online using the MURAL platform if that makes it easier to convene your team.

CASE STUDY: Designing with the end in mind

Together with FundWaste - an innovative start-up with a vision to enable businesses to generate revenue from waste - we set out to design a product using both 'Design For' and 'From Recycling' strategies.

Our design enables the production of units from PCR plastics, whilst ensuring they are still suitable for effective shredding and reuse at end of life. The complexity of the project was increased with the introduction of a camera and sensors, which had to be fully removable from the shell of the product so the entire product could be returned to the 'circular economy' at the end of life.
