Sample Pop Pro Trends

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

Crass Prevention The conversation around safe sex goes tongue-in-cheek to get youth involved Implications - The clever use of crass or tongue-in-cheek humor often appeals to the young consumer, which is an aspect that's being adopted in the conversation around safe sex. As brands aim to educate as well as entertain, the use of humor in otherwise serious instances creates a more relaxed atmosphere more likely to be engaged with by young consumers.

Character Emulation Style inspiration shifts from celebrities to fictional, on-screen characters Implications - As pop culture fandom expands, elements found on the big and small screen are being creatively imitated among consumers. Using cult TV and movie characters as a source for style, consumers are seeking to showcase their admiration for pop culture awareness in a more practical, day-to-day manner. Making subtle nods to shows like Doctor Who and Saturday Night Live, consumers are using clever on-screen references to embody cult characters in a visually stimulating manner.

Subdued Celebrity Moving away from risque fashion, celebrities put modest style front and center Implications - Keeping things simple and laid-back, celebrities, particularly those of a younger and more outspoken demographic, are moving away from revealing fashion designs toward more conservative, homespun looks. Emphasizing the notion that "less is more," modern media icons are redefining how consumers, particularly teens, view beauty. This reflects a shift toward fashion styles that consumers can relate to and easily duplicate.

Blatant Faux Fake fur provides mental and physical comfort in more than just clothing Implications - Though physical comfort is still important to consumers, the desire for a clear conscience has consumers seeking alternatives to luxurious, but often cruel fur. This ushers in a wave of faux fur that is so pervasive it is penetrating industries beyond fashion. Consumers are wearing their faux fur badge with pride, un-intuitively going against the glamorization of "authenticity" in favor of passive activism.

Benevolent Blogging Online stars use their influence for a cause Implications - The blogging phenomenon has changed the faces of journalism, the fashion industry, and now, the world of social good. Utilizing the quick-and-affordable influence gained with a good blog for philanthropic causes elevates the act of sharing one's thoughts with strangers online, signifying not only an acceptance of online communication, but a celebration of it on part of consumers.

Soda Upheaval The growing obesity epidemic villanizes sugary carbonated drinks Implications - Health concerns and, furthermore, the battle against child obesity has fingers pointing at soda as an "empty calorie" culprit. As a result, soda is being replaced by more health-conscious alternatives that boast the same strong flavor, caffeine content, and even in some cases, visual branding. This upheaval of a classic American beverage signifies the true strength of the health movement.

Sippable Exotic Intriguing beverage flavors make for small doses of culinary adventure Implications - The rise of foodie culture has the average consumer craving more adventure in their edibles; for some, however, the idea of exoticism is intimidating. Daring drinks allow hesitant almost-foodies to sample adventurous flavor. This also gives those within the food industry a way to test less-predictable flavors within their consumer base.

Personified Play Toys are physically adapted to imitate the aesthetics of the consumer Implications - Heightening generic toys with individual appeal, brands are offering consumers the chance to alter products with distinct imagery and personalized alterations. Allowing kids and adults the chance to superimpose their own portraits and head shots onto dolls and online activities, brands are transforming sources of play into experiences that evoke both entertainment and personal references.
