The Futurist, a creative intelligence agency led by luxury analyst Paola De Luca, will power for the first time a virtual jewellery marketing, product and design trends course, The Futurist Foresight Course, running from April to June.
“The course will feature Zoom presentations by highly qualified industry experts looking at the future of design, consumer culture, lifestyle, and product directions, and will help participants identify market opportunities,” De Luca said.
“The sessions will help companies and individuals to map upcoming seasons to enhance their business strategies and brand, collections or communications campaigns. The course is affordable, comfortably within the reach of independent or small-scale designers, manufacturers, marketers, market specialists or retailers, rather than just large corporations.”
