    How do you fund yourselves? And can we get our clients to donate part of their fees???

    • AWOLtrends says:

      Donations are always welcome.
      AWOL Trends is a free resource offered by AWOL Company, a California-based strategic design consultancy, and is funded through our main client-based design project work. This database represents years of internal trend curation that we’ve chosen to share with the design community, simply because there was no other resource like it available.
