04 Research, Insight & Forecasting
Thorough research, a keen understanding of trends, and forecasting insight are integral to Kate’s practice. A regular at trade, design, and art shows, conferences and talks, Kate takes a holistic, broad-church approach to understanding and mapping aesthetic trends.
Research is documented through photographs that often form the basis for presentations, as opposed to secondary online research. Alongside this is a physical material library that is constantly updated.
Kate sits on industry trend panels for Colour Hive, who produce the quarterly magazine MIX for Colour Hive members.
