List of Lists

Staying on top of industry trends is a full-time job but we've read all of these things so you don't have to.

Our team has had a dedicated Slack channel for keeping an eye on and discussing the coming year's trends since late summer. To be honest, our trends report from the year before was still making the rounds on the web at that time. But the fact that we've been watching for what changes are coming and reading every industry blog we can get our eyes on as we put together the latest iteration of our report is just par for the course. We do it not only every year but every day. We are constant students of our industry, always eager to learn more, understand the latest technology or attempt to understand the most recent cultural phenomenon that may impact the brands we work with. We voraciously consume content from the obvious industry sources (design blogs, industry publications, etc.) and even tangential ones (interior design and fashion blogs, app updates, and software releases). 

As we put the finishing touches on our 2018 report, we wanted to share a list of some of the best articles we've archived, trends other people are predicting will affect brands and businesses in the year ahead and even a couple ideas on what color to finally paint that room of yours! It's a list of lists!
