We select case studies and examples according to their inspirational value. For each trend we provide stimulating brand stories and seek to deliver unexpected data.
Our TrendLetters are available to all interested clients. Each edition focuses on one current phenomenon or a micro-trend. We illustrate them by providing examples and expert analysis as well as indicate implications specific to our client’s business (a customer’s business).
Brands consist not only of the product and emotions, but also brand experience and Brand Purpose. In these unpredictable times we need insight into both the present moment as well as the near future. We strive to grow all of the brand pillars and assist them in developing resistance. We aim to make them future-proof.
