FOOD FOR THOUGHT

Thanks to a flow of personal information gathered from social media, smartphones, websites and email, big data knows all about the consumers you are trying to sell to – where they shop, how and what they shop, and even what they might want next. And as data analytics become smarter and more refined, content will also evolve, to increasingly focus on customisation and personalisation.

- David R Sha-Publisher View Publications

I want to be a part of a generation where we keep questioning the traditional industry standards of cheap labor, poor material decisions, and the feed into consumerism to create a new sustainable, ethical, and progressive future.
