‘No one can predict the future but everyone can imagine and create their own future.’
Trendslator informs and inspires companies and organisations about trends and the future. Research into short term and long term developments and their translation into a future vision are essential prerequisites for successful innovation and creation. Trends will be studied for you and with you, and then be converted into strategies and concepts, markets and brands. The aim is to explore options and possibilities for a better future for your company or organisation.
Trendslator was founded in 1997. Futuring, our method of researching and translating of trends, was developed in 1999 and then implemented at, and together with organisations in various sectors. Our online activities started in 2007 in the form of Trendslog. Since the foundation of our studio, we have been making trend books and publications, from 2007 to 2020 in the form of MOOD. In 2021 we will introduce Futuring Friends for those who want to prepare for the future of their organisation.
This is what we can offer:
- information and inspiration about trends and the future
- insight and future perspectives on opportunities and possibilities
- future vision for creation and innovation
- a better future for your company or organisation
‘We are what we do.’
