While every second blog and article at this time of year look at trends, I can’t resist also sharing a few thoughts on the subject – there is after-all a reason why trend-forecasting is so popular.
What I enjoy most about it, is the social commentary function of trends. Certain types of behaviour is expected for a reason and trends give us such an interesting way of looking at global events. If economic pressure is experienced, not only do people worldwide try to spend less, but perhaps they try to cook at home more often – perhaps start baking their own bread – and yes, a trend is on the arise – home-baked, artisan breads. My example is of course an over-simplification, but you get the idea. I love that about trends.
So what trends are forecasted for the New Year?
I had a good time reading trendwatching.com‘s 10 top trends for 2015. They are consumer focused – something I think is very important! – and they give an alternative and fun perspective without losing the plot. Have a look!
