Pawel Norbert's Other-Wordly Collages

“We construct our reality in our own way. We do that everyday on our Instagrams, blogs and other carefully curated outlets. Knowing that the world around us doesn’t look like this, we somehow want to believe that all those often extremely filtered and post-processed images in our IG stream are actually the real thing.”

Digital Trend Forecast 2016: The Year of Consumer-Led Communications Marketing

"The digital trends with the most staying power all have one thing in common: focus on the consumer. Today’s consumers are more powerful than ever, and they are telling us what they want: implicitly through behavior and data—and explicitly through direct communication. Emerging technologies and opportunities enable brands to place consumers at the center of their marketing strategies like never before." Source: Edelman website
