Canvas8's keeping TABS (September 2010)
TABS is a biannual report produced by Canvas8. TABS is an acronym of Trends, Anthropology, Behaviour and Strategy - the four components necessary in understanding global societal developments. The project identifies and highlights the latest cultural influences on people’s behaviour, setting them in the context of what they’re doing, and how and where they’re doing it. We’ve highlighted the interplay between different trends and their impact on one another - the TABS do not operate in isolation. By way of example we’ve identified people’s Rising Social Conscience (increasing moral responsibility), which is directly, impacting Sustainable Capitalism (brands needing to offer more than just products or services but to do so in a responsible way) and being a reflection of Brand Me (people curating their online personality - brands they associate with and photos they edit). Prod it, explore it, use it, share it and please tell us what you think.
