Musical Nostalgia Music manufacturers focus on vintage motifs for consumers seeking authenticity Implications - Musical instruments are beginning to feature increasingly vintage motifs that replace modern, high-tech layouts with old school designs and features. Aside from romanticizing and referencing the history of music production, vintage styled products are also indicative of a consumer preference for authenticity.

Approachable Automotive The automotive industry aims to be more consumer-friendly Implications - Purchasing a car can be a daunting process, a fact that automotive retailers and dealerships know very well. In an attempt to come across as less intimidating, many auto companies are taking steps such as downsizing facilities or offering alternate forms of communication to consumers. By instilling confidence in the consumer, these measures make the purchasing process easier for all.
