My belief is that the term came about as Design Thinking because it was a way to look at a problem that was completely outside the realm of how businesses used to do things - hence the world Design as...

Up and coming Designers/Firms

Hi there! I was wondering who the C77 community thought we up and coming designers and/or firms in the realm of product design and packaging? Perhaps less mainstream than the likes of Philippe Starck, Karim Rashid or even Dror... but just as interesting or forward looking. My thoughts were perhaps A...

CPG Trend Services?

Hi,

Would anyone know of any trend services for CPG domestically (usa) or abroad (europe/asia)? I'm thinking of something like stylesight.com, stylus.com, wgsn.com or even something like the donegr group but with a focus on packaging/cpg

Thanks!
