Professions, transportation, communication. EVOLVE has been drawing inspiration from the past to boldly look at and imagine tomorrow. In this reportage we have chosen to feature a series of illustrations drawn from Retro-Futurism, the artistic movement that is inspired by the way the future has been envisioned in times past, starting from the 1920s.

The following sequence of images expresses the bold, creative and technological vision of the future held by those who at that time dared to foreshadow the daily use of the videophone or driverless car.

Filled with tension between the past and the future, and infused with an upbeat confidence in the scientific discoveries that have led to the imagining of new city environments, methods of communication, and innovative means of transportation and space exploration.

Unafraid to imagine the world of tomorrow.

The visionary foresight of Retro-Futurism, poised between past and future and inspired by the promises of liberation that new technologies offer, leading us into the third millennium where reality has surpassed fantasy. With the speed of digitalization, physical distances have been overcome and time frames drastically reduced.

Technology and professional life expand toward open horizons, where people and businesses grow together, bringing their futures closer together.

Starting with today: connected, sustainable, and with a humanist vision.
