After a year of uncertainty, economic flux and an unprecedented boom in technological advancement, it’s no surprise that consumer behaviour has shifted dramatically. But it’s not all bad news: now is the time for innovation.


2021 asked us to adjust and respond to new realities – and new responsibilities. Brands were tasked with holding the mirror up to themselves, and demonstrating, quite publicly, where they stand when it comes to their ethics and their purpose.

Behavioural changes motivated by the pandemic accelerated the shift towards values-driven consumption. With consumers asking for more and more transparency, 2022 will see the art of showing bear far more weight than telling.
