Putting the brakes

There's a noticeable schism forming: People are addicted to their screens but, more frequently, resent it. "Every designer at Fjord is talking about this. The mobile phone has changed the way we have relationships with people," Curtis said. "We expect to see more people talking about mindfulness apps or taking digital detox holidays or mandating that meetings take place without digital devices."

Some of this stems from what Fjord refers to as that "increasing tension between our attention on digital and our need to focus on the (unmediated) real world around us." Though digital habits won't be easy to break, this trend will lend a more critical eye to how we use technology and how it shapes our behaviour.
