Top 100 Customization Trends of 2014

From Personalized Sneaker Accessories to Wooden Punch Buggies

— January 1, 2015 — Art & Design
With the rise of 3D printing, many of the top 2014 customization trends favor the use of technology over the kind of crafty, homespun creations that you can make with your own two hands.

In order to make products and services appealing to as wide an audience as possible, brands are rejecting the idea that one-size-fits-all. In doing this, this completely changes the notion of bespoke items being a luxury, as technology like 3D printing brings the opportunity for ordinary objects like headphones, shoes and prosthetics to be one of a kind.

Some standout examples of customization trends in 2014 include Pungas' 3D-printed shoe accessories for personalizing sneakers, Bamin's line of fully customizable handbags and the Floyd Leg attachments, which help you turn any flat surface into a table.

For more on how customization is shaping products, services and consumer experiences check out Trend Hunter's Customization Trend Report.
