Zeitgeist 2011: anxiety, mobility, blending, indulgence, immersion, wrath, nudity and more


As you no doubt know, the delightful word “Zeitgeist” comes from the German, meaning ‘spirit of the times’. And in these extraordinary times it is useful to distill the spirits of the day.

As such we have re-created our Zeitgeist for 2011 as a slideshow, as it’s an easier way to digest the 11 themes we put forward.

See the Map and ExaTrends of the Decade for a longer timeframe view forward, as well as the original Zeitgeist document.

What do you think? What will define the Zeitgeist for the year ahead?
