Spotting short term trends is easy: suddenly everyone is wearing salmon, or playing Pokemon Go, or eating kale with everything. But it is impossible to design for trends that last 2 minutes. They are fads with the life span of a teenager’s mood. What leading design thinkers do is realize that mini-fads often hint at major issues bubbling underneath the surface. These Mega-Trends shape our lives for years. Through thoughtful analysis from multiple viewpoints, critical life and work problems are unveiled that offer opportunities for new designs, materials, and processes. Designers who accept the challenge of designing for Mega trends create the products of tomorrow.
