Sample Paper Pro Trends

Each Paper PRO Trend is on its own slide with implications, a quantified score, and examples linked to online paper articles, videos and images. Examples:

Motion Branding Consumers are responding to fashion marketing that highlights products in motion Implications - In an effort to keep from becoming static, many fashion retailers are placing a greater emphasis on movement when it comes to fashion branding. In a day and age where the sedentary lifestyle is crucified, brands with an action-oriented aesthetic -- whether it be advertisements, packaging or products -- develop a strong appeal among wellness-focused consumers.

Macabre Animalism Critters in design are taken from cutesy to dark for added sophistication Implications - The use of animals in design used to signify a cutesy, meme-friendly tone. In today's society, where consumers are more concerned with individualism than pleasantries, this has shifted toward a darker tone. The use of animalism in a more macabre context questions the concept of humanity, providing what consumers crave: more meaningful experiences.

Doodle Packaging Brands turn to packaging designs reminiscent of kids artwork and drawings Implications - Recognizing the need to target youthful consumers in a more approachable manner, brands are turning to packaging designs that are reminiscent of artwork that kids would actually produce. Featuring sketches and doodles of animals and insects, brands are using imagery that kids can identify with, reflecting a need to connect with consumers, particularly those of a younger age range, in a more authentic manner.

Sustainable Play Parents search for eco products that will satiate their children's needs Implications - Eco-consciousness typically isn't particularly important to children, but it is to many parents who are becoming more aware of their household's consumption habits. Parents who wish to instill a sustainable mentality in their offspring are searching for products with eco-friendly packaging that's appealing to children. This shift demonstrates that eco-consciousness is being introduced to a younger demographic by increasing product engagement.

Monstrous Marketing Childrens' brands stand out with bizarre, animalistic packaging Implications - Many snack brands geared towards children are ditching the "cute" aesthetic in favor of a more intense look. By incorporating monsters, animals and other bizarre elements into packaging using a playful cartoon style, brands are setting themselves apart on shelves while appealing to kids' desire for an unusual aesthetic.

Ethical Couture Consumers are choosing sustainability over luxury in terms of packaging Implications - Fashion packaging has often centered around offering consumers a luxury experience. However, many retailers have been making the switch to eco-friendly packaging alternatives that are less about delighting consumers, and more about communicating a sense of ethics. This shift indicates that premium products are becoming less about a luxury aesthetic, and more about a powerful ethos.

Physical Appification Apps are enhanced with physical features to enhance sensory engagement Implications - While online games and mobile apps offer consumers entertainment while on the go, a lack of physical engagement can often make the process less stimulating. Combining mobile technology with traditional methods of play, brands are creating products that interact with online apps, helping to enhance digital activities with added sensory features.

Marketplace Bonding The online marketplace nurtures its community of buyers and sellers Implications - In an effort to strengthen the relationships between buyers, sellers and the marketplaces themselves, the online marketplace industry has seen a surplus of programs, events and social media initiatives that allow each member in this online micro-chain to better understand one another. This shift reveals that those who play in the online marketplace seek to be part of a true community, beyond transactions.
