K-HOLE has released its third issue, THE K-HOLE BRAND ANXIETY MATRIX, a deep look into how consumers are managing emerging anxieties in the face of an ever-evolving and increasingly branded cultural landscape.

K-HOLE is a trend forecasting report by Greg Fong, Sean Monahan, Emily Segal, Chris Sherron, and Dena Yago.
