stories and stimulus from a consumer insight consultant



After last year’s impressive trend blend based on the London Tube map, this year the folk at Nowandnext and Future Exploration Network have produced a new version for 2008 based on Shanghais’ underground routes.

Nice visualisation of current issues and how they interrelate, especially the five ‘major interchanges’ of Globalisation, Digitalisation, Virtual worlds, Ageing and Anxiety!
