Only by truly understanding our consumers, the cultures they live in and the world your brand operates in, are we able to create work which deeply connects with them.

We do this by carefully curating information from data, workshops and interviews. This allows us to formulate meaningful and innovative insights to support strategic and business decisions, which ultimately gives us the knowledge to meet your business results.

Knowledge through data curatorship

The world is increasingly nuanced and complicated. Through taking a holistic view which combines various forms of qualitative and quantitive research, we’re able to better unlock todays consumer feelings, expectations, attitudes and opinions, validating thought and insight. This allows us to create robust recommendations on brands, theories and products.

These methodologies are delivered by an in-house team that are able to curate bespoke processes to best unlock what lies beneath your business challenges.

We use a number of secondary research techniques to define key insights per project.

We feel strongly that by understanding customers and their attitudes we can create better and more engaging work.

First of all – to do this – we look inwards. Competitor and sector analysis affords opportunity to look widely at your sector – creating a snapshot view of the landscape to understand where and what our differentiators could be. As part of our competitor analysis, we often define key brand ambitions or aspirations and look out of sector to understand how other brands are achieving this.

Secondly, we look outwards and to the future. Our in-house research team can help you to understand macro trends affecting customers now and in future as well as brands who have started to innovate to meet these expectations.

Customer attitudes

Looking at customer attitudes through a macro lens means our team can carve meaningful conclusions to contextualise the customer.

Out of sector inspiration

We want to make sure you stay ahead of the game, and our in-house research team will help you understand not just your sector- but the world better.

Brand positioning

Defining your space in the market is key to ensuring success. We can help to spot the opportunities which will be integral to your business.
