Cultured Sentiment Romantic occasions receive a humorous overhall with notorious pop culture icons Implications - Taking a lighthearted approach to traditionally emotional occasions, consumers are turning to products and imagery that reference notorious, mass media icons.

Occult Branding Moody, clandestine imagery aims to inspire product-driven ritual in consumers Implications - In a reflection of the fascination with mystical spirituality, brands have begun using dark, occult-inspired imagery in packaging in hopes of influencing consumer spending habits. This use of supernatural imagery speaks to the postmodern application of formerly sacred symbols in order to de-stigmatize them, while also representing the modern consumer's routine-based relationship with their possessions.

Residential Pop-Up Temporary design provides impermanent residences for consumers Implications - In spite of the fleeting nature of pop-ups, the temporary spaces are borrowing from residential motifs with spaces suited to an impermanent form of housing.

Cultural Authenticity Brands recognize diverse cultural identities to strengthen relationships Implications - Though the Hispanic market is rapidly growing in terms of purchasing power, it remains largely under-served in the commercial marketplace. Brands are beginning to take notice, seeking to create an authentic connection with the Hispanic consumer by incorporating traditional cultural practices, holistically and without Americanization. The use of bi-lingual campaigns or Latino spokespeople communicates that brands are prioritizing the Hispanic population, and the lack of forced assimilation gives these campaigns credence.

Communal Delivery Apps allow large groups to order meals together to make delivery easier Implications - As the demand for convenience grows, food services are adapting to ensure the delivery process is even more user-friendly. Allowing large groups of people to order all at once, these services not only make dining with others more streamlined, but also accommodate and emphasize the social aspect of eating.
