Jetsetter Design Products to aid the effects of travel accommodate an influx of global travelers Implications - For many consumers, the act of traveling is more about necessity rather than for pleasure, which is being taken into account with products that are distinctly designed for the frequent traveler.

Meta-Marketing Brands thrive for authenticity, making use of self-aware marketing tactics Implications - The shift from over-the-top marketing campaigns to more subtle forms of print and television ads has become apparent. Particularly with the rise of millennial purchasing power, brands are looking for ways to appeal "real" to this consumer segment and self-mockery is becoming a fast track to become relatable to Gen Y. This form of advertising is now moving beyond marketing and beginning to bleed into other areas such as packaging and retail spaces.
