The following is a curated collection based on your specific preferences. You saw these designs and others over a week ago, but here we present to you your favorites. Now, you'll see more of these pieces, and you'll learn more about them in the context of the full vision.
Henry's time at Boeing was important not only for himself, but for the company as well. His pioneering work in many areas (and on many projects) set the stage for so much that would come later. He is a true innovator and that's no secret.
However, Henry would be the first person to tell you that it was very much a team effort all around. Boeing's astute management and its internal team-building talent created an enviable work culture by any standard. Much like having the right tools for a job, any given project must also have the right people. Otherwise, the process is flawed and progress is impeded, often at great cost to the company employing the members of the team! As efficiently as Boeing built its technology and aircraft, it also built its teams. Many of the most important ones from their 1960s to 2000s heyday featured Dr. Henry Halladay as a key member.
It is commonly said that there are five elements of successful teamwork: Communication, Delegation, Efficiency, Ideas, and Support. This is true now, and it was true then. Without these elements a team cannot succeed in any worthwhile sense. All of these qualities were shared by Henry and his associates as they designed, built and problem-solved at the Boeing Company.
The following awards sub-series represents that teamwork experience in premium, customized awards art pieces; the finest in the world. This is a universal concept, but here and now it is related to Henry's experience. This awards lineup is a part of the ongoing Life & Work awards series, but it is also very much its own entity. This collection strives to capture a previously unaddressed, but hugely important part of Henry Halladay's professional life.
Henry relied on effective communication between himself and his colleagues. Much of this was accomplished by listening, which not only showed respect, but also built trust amongst team members.
This unique piece captures both the simplicity and complexity of good communication between team members. The red coloring might put one in mind of clarity or high alertness, which is so essential when it comes to communicating effectively. The two tendrils are in full accord, but still very much independent. The end result will no doubt be good with this type of connectivity happening!
Henry's teams understood the strengths and weaknesses of each team member. Like the aforementioned "right tool for a job," sometimes on Boeing's teams one person was better at one thing than another. Henry's ability to recognize this, as well as his willingness to play whatever role (large or small) the situation called for, made him an asset to any group of which he was a part.
This piece's nesting structure signifies separate individuals each charged with a different responsibility in the goal to serve the larger goal, or purpose. All exist within the project in their respective roles. It is a harmonious working relationship.
Henry's strong and cohesive teams developed systems that allowed them to collaborate efficiently to complete tasks in a timely manner. Through working together, they were aware of their own capabilities and the capabilities of the group in general. Therefore, they were able to organize the workload accordingly.
The above work intends to depict the quality of efficiency within the team structure as an unpredictable, often knotty path that is somehow streamlined by its many individual members all moving in the same direction. This is represented, we feel, by the individual strands of the design, which collectively navigate the challenging terrain, or trajectory, which lies before them in unison. With any one member out of synch it would look pretty funny and the piece wouldn't work! Isn't that true of teams in general?
This is the one you saw, Henry, when you viewed the early shots of this series last time. You had asked if this one could include a crystal base. The answer is yes. We would be willing to make a substitution in this circumstance, as it would still maintain the integrity of the vision. Also, it does not blemish the natural beauty or balance of the selection itself.
We would be able to provide you with an alternate design if you'd prefer this one. It is the same concept, but with an amber crystal appearance and clear base.
When a team works well together colleagues feel more comfortable offering suggestions and ideas. A respectful and trusting team environment, like those Henry was a part of during his Boeing years, will not only enable colleagues to think more creatively, but will lead to more productive and collaborative brainstorming sessions. Henry knows this first-hand from countless experiences and successes.
The above design exhibits a filament-heavy appearance inside a commanding orb, set to convey the one of a kind energy and spark that happens when like-minded people get together to move a project forward. It is positively electrical in terms of the energy in the room.
Henry Halladay enjoyed a strong team environment at Boeing, which acted as a support mechanism for he and his fellow co-workers on a given project. They helped each other improve their own performance as well as work together toward improving their professional development. Not only did this enable them to overcome challenges and maintain productivity, it also created lasting bonds, which would serve them well together on future projects. The greatest beneficiary of all? Boeing and the millions and millions of people all over the world who benefited in one way or another from these efforts.
The unique design above speaks for itself. Team members support one another, quite simply, and that is shown here... remarkably so. The steep incline might seem insurmountable, but one gets the feeling that through the power of teamwork it will be accomplished momentarily. The blue, white and clear optics perfectly capture the Boeing visual motif.
Something didn't feel right. As we began to close the loop on the Teamwork Series it became immediately apparent that this beautifully sourced and crafted mini-collection was missing something. For a series of art pieces celebrating Henry Halladay's time with Boeing and the absolute importance of his collaborations and team experiences, it needed a unifying force behind it; an end to the teamwork story that would also serve as an open-ended invitation to all teamwork to come. Perhaps it would even inspire others who saw it to value teamwork differently!
Upon careful consideration--and yes, teamwork--on our end, it was decided that the artistic and technical crowning touch would be something that joined all five elements together in synchronicity. We wanted to see the spirit of Henry's past projects (not to mention this project itself) unite with the perfect visual structure that would serve as the sum total of our intent with this collection. We believe the above piece makes the grade.
