Old vs. New
Think about it. We live in a world of new technology that facilitates all of our lives. What would we do without the Internet? Soon enough we will be as addicted to iPhones as we are to computers. Marketing has shifted from a focus on advertising, direct mail and traditional sponsorship to mobile, social networking, branded events, etc.
But there is one thing that always stays the same. The hype for old school trends. The 80s has been back for a few years now. The idea of the 80s seems so cool and relevant to our generation, that brands design 80s style clothing, and it’s the sweetest thing ever. We see 80s birthday parties all over the place and the 80s music brings back all the good memories of a time where technology had such a small impact on our lives. My question is why such a gap between the modern world we live in and the constant comeback of old trends?
Is something missing in our society? Despite how good we became in developing technology, are we lacking good fashion style, good music, good spirit, are we missing the values prevalent in the 80s? Are our lives more boring when technology is away from us (when it is)? And most importantly, are we missing simple creativity?
