Trend map for 2007 and beyond

Trend Blend 2007+ map
Inspired by the subway map for a well-known city, the map shows some of the major trends in each of these segments, as well as the key intersections between the trends. Have a browse through to see some of the more interesting trends in the landscape. And please don’t take it too seriously…
As with most of our content, this is released on a Attribution-ShareAlike Creative Commons license, so if you disagree with the trends we’ve chosen or think you can improve on the map, please take it and run with it!
Our clients will get a glossy pinup of the map, and if there’s enough demand we’ll release a T-shirt….
Fabulous festive season to all!
