Since 1997, we‘ve been in the trends and foresight business - as publishers and network enablers. We are proud on what we did. But things have changed. So, we decided to change too. We want to add more value to our trend research and foresights: to connect new dots and offer compelling custom made research and stories. We want to call the shots as they are: black is the new black.

This trade is not about one color! More things work at the same time. The future houses many colors, many opinions, definitions and more stories that matter, that are all equally important. Black is black, as green is green and orange is orange. We like diversity.


With a global community of researchers, time travelers, futurists and zeitgeist savvies, we offer unique methods of research, concept and visionary development for industry planners and decision makers.

We’ve found new ways to tap into the opportunities and ideas that lie ahead. We travel ahead and back in time to understand the changes happening in our society as well as to showcase probable, possible and preferable futures. From analyzing consumer cultural trend content to science fiction writing, we help you through social strategies and influence management to understand, envision, invent and implement future strategies.

Content & Context

You can subscribe to our quarterly digital trend issues for €75 euro a year. We add every story to our story databank containing over 8,000 articles, views and visions gathered since 1997. Every tear in November we publish our And Beyond book. You can order that at our shop!

You can also hire us for our services. We work as a think-tank specialized in early signals and new topics, for new insights, tapping into that future that fits to your organization, for special reports, trend books, workshops and brainstorms. We help you finding new pathways, new strategies; we organize masterclasses, workshops, courses, mash-ups and events to dive into the future or future developments. We'd like to do that together!
