Welcome to my blog. My name is Minna Takala. I run a creative consultancy specialised in Design Innovation; Futures & Trends, Lifestyles & Culture. I have been working in the creative industry for 15+ years initially for design agencies, and at the moment as a freelancer. Today, I work for leading brands and organisations collaborating globally. (All client work is confidential).
I want to discover new ways for companies and individuals to see the future in the present. But how can you manage a future that hasn’t happened yet? It starts with transformation of the present. My job is to boost innovation skills using Transformative Design thinking and doing.
MY MISSION is to active positive change in individuals, teams, organisations and communities to grow resilience using both imagination and intelligence.
The blog is an exploration into emerging Design & Culture. Since I am based in London, it is mainly focusing on what is happening here.
The blog creates a continuous ‘trend snippets’ stream of hot topics across different sectors. It can be used as a platform to support and guide design theme development and concept creation. Emerging themes and Popular Categories will point the directions within the content.
