This interview is with David Mattin, Head of Trends & Insights at Trendwatching.com. Trendwatching is an independent trend firm based out of London, with an impressive network of trend spotters around the world. Trendwatching evaluates consumer trends and provides a freemium service, with paying services such as their latest Trend Reports, a Trend Framework and their Innovation Database. Given my association with the Netexplo Observatory, I was eager to get to know more about Trendwatching and their slant on what’s going on in consumer trends.
