New Issue of Heidelberg's print process Magazine
More dynamism - less consumption - New Ecology
The phrase "more dynamism - less consumption" has
been a familiar refrain in the automotive industry for many years.
But how do things stand in other branches of industry? In its
latest edition, print process, Heidelberger Druckmaschine AG's
magazine, sets out to find the energy savers of the print media
industry, and comes across a few impressive examples.
The attention of the print process authors was drawn to
Papierfabrik Haindl in Augsburg. This is a family-run business that
has built probably the world's most efficient paper machine.
The Austrian print and media service provider Gugler on the other
hand sets standards by making sure that even the heat given off by
its presses is not wasted. Christian Teubert and Dirk Jepsen from
the Hamburg company Ökopol GmbH demonstrate other examples of
how ingenious environmental protection measures can really save
print media companies money. And after having presented her
comprehensive eco-statement to Bill Clinton, Bette Fishbein, the
leading environmental expert at the New York eco-institute INFORM,
now presents her findings to print process readers.
The magazine was also a guest at a vocational training
workshop in Munich, where it learned first-hand about the
opportunities that a career as media designer offers to disabled
people. print process No. 14/01 takes a close look at unusual
careers of Russian soldiers in its article about the Russian
printshop Ostmaster. And readers can find out what happens when
creatives from America's pop and fashion worlds design a print
medium in the article entitled "Wow! Visionaire!", before
being confronted with a creative anachronism - the one that has
helped the Jack Daniels distillery enjoy success for the last 135
And to finish, print process No. 14/01 turns its readers on
their heads by sending them "down under" to the middle of
the Australian outback. There, the Koori Mail newspaper is fighting
for the survival of the Aboriginal culture, which has been passed
down exclusively by word of mouth.
