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

Cultured Science As complacency to digital art rises, consumers react to science-based artistry Implications - There is little that cannot be rendered using computer animation, but a rising influx of scientific images as art are taking precedence for their simplistic beauty. As consumers become complacent to overly processed art, a move backwards to simple images of the natural world offers educational benefits in the form of entertainment.

Nutritional Nostalgia Animated fruit packaging allows for more approachable nutritional tactics Implications - While adhering to a nutritional lifestyle offers a variety of health benefits, keeping to a restricted diet can often make day-to-day living tiresome and bland. Offering visual excitement without compromising nutritional integrity, brands are utilizing illustrations and personified imagery to transform mundane fruit products into designs that are nostalgic of one’s childhood. Blending youthful aesthetics with a desire for health-conscious living, animated fruit packaging reflects a turn toward more entertaining, yet approachable methods of nutritional consumption.

Instructive Play Seeking to stimulate children, parents opt for video game teaching tactics Implications - While video games offer youths a playful source of distraction, engaging in digital play often limits exposure to more diverse, and stimulating ideas. Seeking to add educational qualities to sources of online amusement, parents are turning to games that help improve personal skills in all aspects of life, combining the interactive qualities of gaming with the need for more engaging, yet valuable sources of everyday entertainment.

Musical Play A need for sophisticated stimulation prompts more refined musical activities Implications - While digital devices offer children a convenient method of entertainment, the addictive qualities of online technology often halt exposure to more cultural and refined activities. As a means to add more diversity, parents are turning to musical toys that encourage sophisticated acts of play, speaking to a shift toward less conventional, more diverse forms of education.

Generous Couture Charitable apparel seeks to promote social good in a modern manner Implications - With consumers often getting caught up with their hectic day-to-day lives, encouraging charitable actions that go outside their comfort zone can be difficult. In an effort to culturally expand their causes beyond certain demographics, charities are merging with more mainstream companies, such as fashion designers, to engage participants on a more approachable level. The blending of social good and fashion reflects the need to utilize more culturally relatable techniques to make a connection with consumers.
