How Trends Drive Innovation in Product Design

By Bresslergroup (other events)

Tuesday, October 9 2018 6:00 PM 8:30 PM EDT

Open-ended product design challenges are, well, challenging! A client may come to a design strategist with no clear direction beyond their intent to disrupt an industry. Trend research is one of the tools we use to come up with new ways to innovate.

In this talk during DesignPhiladelphia, Lead Design Strategist, Ryan Chen, will present a conceptual case study from the personal care industry to show how Bresslergroup might use trend research to lead to insights that lead to novel product concepts.

Chen will begin with an overview of ten socio-cultural megatrends he’s identified that are going to influence consumer value and behavior into the next decade.

The talk + Q&A will start at 6:30 p.m. Stick around Bresslergroup's studio space afterward for beer, snacks, and mingling!

The event is free, but space is limited. Please register early to reserve your spot.
