Trend Intelligence

Trend Intelligence is the secret to making sure that our ideas are bold and different. We spot the latest trends, stay abreast with what’s happening in other countries and this empowers us with the knowledge to develop market leading product.

We get a vast amount of inspiration from our travels, not just from products but also graphics, culture, film and music, all of which fuels our creativity. Our team visits a variety of interesting countries to find stimulation and not always from the same ‘tried and tested’ markets.
