Site of the Week Vol 11 ::

Trendhunter is a great site for staying up tp date with global trends, from design to music you can find awesome info on everything from Ninja Star Architecture, to Inflatable sleeping coats its all here. Dont get me wrong its not all cooky and weird, there are some awesome examples of highly innovative design, architecture, music and fashion. We found some awesome stuff on our search through the site.

One of the really interesting aspects of Trendhunter is anyone can become a “trendhunter”, and you can actually make cash doing it. Trendhunter shares its ad revenue with its “trendhunters”. The one problem is I think this is what leads to some of the poorly written, researched and photographed posts on the site. Because as you go through the site you will probably eventually land on one of the slightly worse for wear posts, that was probably slapped together by some dude sitting in his basement with his pants around his ankles, well you get the idea

Here or some of the good and bad points for the site

Good things

  • Each post is rated by clicks and it’s “trendiness”
  • Each post shows awesome photo galleries to accompany the trend
  • Related posts make it easy to navigate your way through the site for hours
  • Free weekly trend report emailed to your inbox

Bad Things

  • Some of the posts are just plain weird
  • Photos are often low res and poorly takes

On the whole its an awesome site and is worth checking out, once you visit it a few times you’ll be going back for more.
