Trendmaps to see the world moving to the future

For years I have been using the trend blends for projects and for pure inspiration. Just one pdf file with a perfect summary of that what is coming in the future. A lot of valuable information sorted in multiple ways. Underneath the last three versions and their top megatrends. Especially the grey timeline (about news and media) in the 2010 trendblend I find very interesting.

When it comes to trendwatching in common, we can devide trends in three different categories:

  • Megatrends: period of 10-30 years
  • Maxitrends: period of 5-10 years
  • Microtrends: period of 0-5 years
