During the presentations creative consultant Kate Franklin and The Future Laboratory’s Caroline Till explore each trend, providing insight into where they come from, the design direction, the colour palette, examples of where they are used and what the trend means for brands, creatives and consumers. The four trends were originally identified on LS:N Global’s Inspire section.
