When we hear the word future it conjures up many ideas and emotions – uncertainty, excitement, change – it also makes us think about our industry. Where will the industry be in the near future, how will the jobs we do change and how will they affect the future?
In a world where our opinion and views can be expressed in such a fast manner what will the future be for our social and private life and will there truly be a difference?
The creative and design industries among others are changing and adapting to a world where politics, terrorism, equality and human rights are starting to really shift our outward perception on the future and what it means.
We all have to deal with the future it’s inevitable - it’s going to happen whether we like it or not, but it’s about what we can do to shape it for ourselves, for those to come and for those who maybe feel they have no future in front of them.
Whether it means Tech, Digital, analogue, connecting in different ways, experiences or just looking forward to that special moment we are all moving forward into the Future. It seemed like a perfect topic to speak about as we start to head into Spring and begin adventures new that will start shaping our future.
