Conspicuous Consumerism Timeline by Holly Cargill

MS Strategic Design and Management
Sustainable Design and Management in New Economies

In this assignment, students were asked to create a map of a new economy according to them, based on a theme they studied. This timeline reflects their interpretation of the key dates, events and figures that led to this economy.

Holly, a first year MS SDM student, chose the theme of conspicuous consumption and the way we are evolving as consumers. Holly looked at the habit of consuming for status, following several trends and symbols into the anthropocene.
