The Future Laboratory

Dear Subscriber,

 Transformation is upon us. Punk-telligent thinking rules. These might be Biblical-sounding phrases, but because everything from how brands innovate to how they design products changes in a post-recessionary climate, new ways of thinking are required.

And for our tenth-anniversary LS:N Global Trend Briefing we identify the trends that are spearheading these changes:

: The Anarconomy Decade – from turbulence to transformation, we examine how anarchic thinking, creative distraction and nothingness days, when non-thinking is crucial, have become the new tools of innovation

: Ubiquitous Gaming Culture – how and why cognitive gaming is set to transform how we shop, think, learn and play as members of Generation D learn to love and live by gaming

: Intuitive Futures – too many choices, so little time to consider them. Enter choice architects, designers and fluency planners using cognitive trickery to transform everything from the products we use to the journeys and decisions we make

: Revivalism – ‘Not everybody wants revolution,’ says The Future Laboratory co-founder Martin Raymond. ‘For many, the recession has been one stress too far.’ Hence, we are witnessing the rise of Revivalist thinking, a nostalgic yearning for all things past, comforting and retro – but with a darker twist.
