What was old
has become new again! There has been a huge resurgence in
"tactile" nostalgia over the last few years. Many people
long for items that go beyond a pixel on a computer screen.
We have seen an
increase in phonograph records and turntables with many current
bands releasing new records on vinyl! A number of
photography buffs are embracing the older Polaroid systems for a
real, and immediate, experience.
Some companies are
running with this trend to try to merge the old with
the new. instagram
is one of last year's #1 start-up companies introducing a free
iPhone app where you can apply cool vintage effects to your
photos and share them via a Social Network with others!
We need to recognize
these trends and to realize people are looking for a personal
experience in all aspects of life. Make sure your business is
also remembering to foster a personal relationship with your
clientele and not just a digital one!
