How to use

You can use the trenDNA cards by yourself, but discussions and ideas will be more fruitful when using this tool in a group setting.


To work with the trend cards you have several options:


Select random trends

Put the trend cards in front of you and select 3-5 random cards. Read the text on the card and use it for inspiration when brainstorming.


Find trend-contradictions

Deliberately select 5-10 trends and see if you can find contradictions among them. A contradiction means two trends that are describing developments which head in opposite directions. Once you have found such a contradiction think about, how your company, your product or service needs to look like in order to fulfil both aspects of the contradiction.


Choose the most appealing trends

Select a set of 5-8 trends you find most influential to your business. Use these trends as the basis for your task ahead.
