Peace Baby!

This week, I'm thinking of trends...notice all the peace around? Here are a few fun new takes on the theme.

As a product designer/creative director, I'm always on the look out for what's "out there" in the marketplace. What trends I think are just starting, what will stick around, and what won't last. I also look for trends that I consider to have popularity in a number of markets...home, fashion, gift, etc. Also, I look for which trends will have the most cross-generational appeal. In order to design a successful product, I need to try to pick up on themes early in the game because our product lead times are typically a year from idea conception to hitting the shelves. If I just noticed the PEACE trend today, I'd be way behind the selling curve!

Have you incorporated any peace into your life?
