So you may have noticed that my presence on Dursk has been a bit non-existent recently. It's all because I have just started my dream job as a Junior Trends Researcher at interiors trend forecasting agency, Trend Bible. Based in Newcastle, it all feels meant to be as I'd previously been crashing at my parents' (who have recently moved to Berwick-upon-Tweed), so it's turned out to be a perfect coincidence, being just down the road in Newcastle.
Trend Bible specialises in predicting trends across home, interiors and kids' lifestyle, with the finished outcome being digitised reports and trend books, which condenses valuable macro and consumer research into interiors direction for the home. Consisting of colour research, fabric swatches and the final trends for the coming season, these 'bibles' are an essential tool for big name brands and retailers. I also really love the Trend Bible blog, which includes features on innovative concepts and relevant news about current reports or workshops they have underway.
My first two weeks have FLOWN BY, and I'm already getting stuck into major consultancy projects and contributing my ideas. With this new job, it's also meant another move, and thankfully I've found the perfect house share. Stay tuned for a house tour post; I've gone crazy buying unnecessary things and already it's starting to look like the perfect Dursk home. The next chapter starts here!
