Using the information derived from researchers around the world and custom-designed forecasting methods, plus the wealth of data generated by www.gettyimages.com, Pam is able to identify—and works to help shape—the visual language of tomorrow. This visual trend research provides advertising, marketing and publishing professionals with imagery that resonates strongly with their target audiences and helps build the profile of their businesses, products and communications.
