In Dose, we look to the pioneers of discovery and philosophical idealisms from early trailblazers who explored conversations between science and culture through psychedelic research journeys. We take inspiration from modern mood research and its correlation to sensory experiences. How physical and mental stability can be improved through virtual adventures, AR introductions and the growing influence of cyber networks that enhance consciousness and blur the lines of reality. Art that aims to break down boundaries gains traction, inviting the mind towards a new type of enlightenment. 

 

DERIVED FROM THE MACRO TREND: 

WOW

Sourcing Trend Direction | Spring-Summer 2020: Dose

It takes a lot to grab our attention today and even more to keep it. The physical world around us is competing with the digital world in our phones and computers. The entertainment, retail, art and marketing industries are seeing positive results from building immersive brand experiences, such as virtual and hybrid events, exhibitions, trade shows, and pop ups. The next level of wow factor is using cutting edge technology tools to deliver multi-sensory experiences that appeal to all five senses, creating loyalty and building emotional relationships with consumers. Customization is a key for the immersive physical retail experience, whether it's personalizing a product or the store tailoring the shopping experience to you through in-person service, augmented, and VR.
