Annual Forecast of Trends

It’s that time of year when JWT Intelligence releases their forecast of trends that will shape or significantly impact consumer behavior in 2014. According to JWT:

“Many of our Things to Watch are technology-centric, including the advent of beacons, Internet safety nets, robots for kids and even techno-paranoia. The list also includes new foods and beverages to watch (savory yogurt, soju), new markets opening up (related to marijuana, privacy and Google Glass), new behaviors (contemplative computing, digital grieving) and ideas with the potential to ladder up to bigger trends.”

Here is a sampling:

  • Algae
  • Arrested “Real Life” Development (social skills for the digital immersed)
  • Edible Packaging
  • Feed-Good Fashion
  • Jumia (the Amazon of Africa)
  • Photoshop for All
  • Snail Slime (natural beauty product)
  • Ugly Produce
