Our story

Spectra is a Belgian based Future Creative Strategy Lab. With a unique blend of trend forecasting, consumer insight, foresight, brand strategy and creative innovation, we inspire and future-proof organisations.


We recently started in 2019, with two people - Karin and Kristel - and a beautiful set of brave clients. We assemble unique teams of writers, visual designers, experts and innovation analysts to document the new and co-create with our clients.

We deliver foresight through a number of products and services, including bespoke trend reports, trend presentations, inspirational workshop sessions, retail tours and brand/product/service positioning strategy. Together, our strategic foresight helps our clients to harness market trends, understand and adapt to emerging consumer needs, position their brands for success and keep them ahead of their competitors.
