The Future Laboratory

The Future Laboratory is recognised internationally for its innovative approach to trend forecasting, consumer insight and brand strategy. Via our global network and in-house team of trend analysts and ethnographic researchers, we offer clients qualitative and quantitative insights into future consumers and how to target them.

Since 2001 we have developed a consultancy that unites editorial work, independent research and creative thinking of the highest calibre with engaged, bespoke client operations that respond to a brand or company's individual need for research and enquiry. Clients in the retail, technology, finance, automotive, food, fashion and creative industries sectors use our daily, weekly and quarterly news feeds, insight reports, analyses, strategy documents and brand personality audits to keep their brand on track, and their marketing, strategy and research teams informed and insightful.

Our specialties : trends, innovation, consumer insight, brand strategy 

Clients currently sharing our thinking include Louis Vuitton, Sony, American Express, MasterCard, Selfridges, Marks & Spencer, General Motors, British Gas, O2, Ikea, Pernod Ricard, Chanel, HSBC, The Body Shop, Condé Nast Media and Woolworths SA and others

How do they do it? By plugging into our Trend Briefings, Futures Forums, Futures ReportsNetwork Evenings and LS:N Global on a regular basis.
