How we do it

We apply a unique three-stage approach to projects. First, we collate everything our own cross-industry experts know about the macro drivers and consumer trends most relevant to your business.

Looking globally and taking you out of your silo to explore multiple categories, our research identifies and evidences the latest trend developments – and highlights the business innovators already addressing emerging consumer needs with new products and services.

Next, we combine insights from our network of industry insiders, commentators and experts with analysis by our own strategists to define the implications of short, medium and long-term trend evolutions for your business. This process typically lasts six to eight weeks.

The end result is a robust, evidence-based independent vision of what the future holds for you – with a wealth of actionable insights that your teams can translate quickly into new future-proofing strategies.

What we deliver

Our research is usually delivered as a highly visual deck, which captures our key findings and action points in everything from text explanations and expert quotes to graphs, maps and tables. Decks are presented, in person or online, by the lead project strategist.

We’re flexible in our deliverables because we understand that businesses like to receive and process new information in different ways. So we can, for example, unpack trends in facilitated workshops and discussions, bring them to life with safaris and interactive experiences, build trend frameworks with multiple deliveries over a calendar year, or create public and media-facing collateral.

Further, we’re able to practically express our insights within your business – by delivering specialist colour and materials forecasts to inspire the look and feel of future product ranges.
