Sample Business Card Pro Trends - Each Business Card PRO Trend is on its own slide with implications, a quantified score, and examples linked to online business card articles, videos and images. Examples:

Branded Infantile Products are emblazoned with child-like drawings for a youthful appeal Implications - Looking to draw in younger buyers, brands are using a more infantile form of branding to draw in curious consumers with vibrant labels and intentionally immature graphics. In doing so, new brands are welcomed as hip newcomers and trusted ones are given a youthful boost for continued success.

Touchless Transfer NFC technology is spreading, offering convenient, contact-free communication Implications - Already a prominent form of data interchange and communication in Europe and Asia, near field communication (NFC) is sweeping across the United States, as more tech designers and brands include the innovative technology into their products and marketing methods. Providing consumers with the next level of convenience and touchless living, NFC, which enables contactless communication between mobile devices and NFC tags, stand to revolutionize a plethora of everyday activities, such as unlocking your door, paying for groceries, or interacting with advertisements.

IndustREtail Business interiors go ultra-minimalist with an industrial aesthetic Implications - Designers have been embracing minimalism throughout the past few years, and now this direction is going to the extreme, with the industrial aesthetic becoming the design go-to for retail and business interiors. Featuring raw wood, concrete materials and other bare-bones, unfinished elements, these industrial-looking retail and business spaces provide consumers with a more subdued sensory experience and offer a clean aesthetic that helps to maintain the focus on the business's products and services.

Paper Preservation Innovations that promote paperless living Implications - Increasingly, the paperless office is becoming the goal of many organizations and has since extended to the day-to-day lives of the average consumer as well. To aid in this goal is the availability of electronic forms of information and communication, which range from digital business cards and touchscreen paper to erasable photocopiers. Considering, however, that the average American office worker prints abut 10,000 pages annually (according to GoPaperless.com), society still has a long way to go. Nonetheless, innovations that encourage paperless living will provide extreme benefit and appeals to eco-minded consumers; even if society never goes completely paperless, the use of less paper still counts toward a greener planet.

Eerie Interior Dark, dim and creepy retail and restaurant establishments Implications - Society has always had a fascination with the macabre, and while most companies tend to stay away from focusing their branding on death and gore, many are willing to create eerie and creepy atmospheres to intrigue customers. By infusing their interiors with dark, dim and overall creepy elements, businesses can draw in the consumer who is fascinated by the paranormal but who still appreciates an environment that is cozy and warm.
