  • BIG PLAN

    big plan

    Strategic planning for brands and communication campaigns must be informed by research geared towards understanding and feeling how a given brand figures into the lives of people. To a great extent, brands belong to the consumers who make them theirs, and in appropriating brands, they give them life. As such, we tackle planning projects with collaborative tools and strategic thought, without ever losing sight of the objectives outlined in the creative briefing.

    HEALTH AND WELLNESS

    health and wellness

    The value of health is trending upwards, particularly for societies facing high life-expectancy rates. The value of health is clear to everyone today. People are so concerned about good health that it has become the focal point of their lifestyles.
    Health consumers are informed: they demand quality and must trust their brands and products. Even when their health fails, people being treated with pharmaceuticals are no longer mere patients. They are increasingly well informed about available treatments and they not only know their rights but demand that doctors respect them, even if they have to go to the healthcare authorities.

We as a team are passionate about understanding what makes people tick, and what moves and excites them. We are curious by nature and we cultivate the art of questioning things.

  • ZOMBIE IS IN THE AIR: LATENT FEAR OF SOCIAL DEATH

    AUTHOR: // CATEGORY: consumer psychology, FMCG, trends

    The fictional works we consume with the greatest fascination compel us with a sense of catharsis in that magical space between the big screen and the spectator, like an exorcism expelling the supressed fears that grip us in that terrifying bubble we inhabit while in their grasp. And it seems we have been particularly fascinated, for a few years now, with a rather dirty, ragged, brusque and dangerous group of people with minimal verbal skills: zombies – yes, sir – otherwise known as the living dead. The success of series like The Walking Dead, the invasion of zombie dolls and figures in our kids’ toy chests, the plethora of bars and clubs with zombie theme nights, and the boom in zombie art are just a few of the countless expressions of contemporary society’s collective fascination with zombies.

    The Walking Dead

    I would argue that this widespread obsession with zombies is rooted in a latent fear of social death; that is, the fear of becoming one of the walking dead, more like animals than humans, driven by the need to eat and condemned to survive, but no longer thinking and feeling individuals.  Continue reading

  • CO-PRODUCING RESEARCH WITH KIDS

    AUTHOR: // CATEGORY: child & family, qualitative research

    All too often, childhood is seen as the opposite of adulthood and hierarchical relationships are established in which the opinions of children are either undervalued or completely ignored. While there are signs that this is changing, undertaking actions aimed at kids without including them in the process is common practice in different social areas. Education is one example: only the most advanced pedagogical methodologies ask children what they want to learn and how they want to go about doing it, as active participants in the learning process.

    Marketing is not exempt from this passive approach. So many brands could improve the performance of their projects simply by asking their young consumers what they think of them and observing their preferences. So many companies would benefit from using their research budgets to conduct studies in collaboration with children rather than in an attempt to understand fashion trends and imitate them. The creative potential of children is underestimated by many companies and brands that rely on them as consumers.  Continue reading

  • SMALL TEMPTATIONS – GREAT PLEASURES

    AUTHOR: // CATEGORY: FMCG

    The financial crisis has had (and continues to have) a profound impact on Spanish society. For years now we have been observing major changes in consumption behaviour and in how people think about shopping. One of the most significant changes – one we have all seen – is that consumers today put a lot more thought into what they buy, and they value their money more than they did before the crisis. As such, they are devising their own personal shopping strategies to save money wherever they can.

    But it is becoming increasingly clear that saving money is not the only thing they are interested in. Consumers also want to maintain some pleasures in life. And, in these hard times, they see a world of opportunities opening up before them that is growing significantly and directly related to the search for pleasure (the craze for coupons, virtual outlets, shopping clubs, low-cost leisure activities, etc.).

    Brands offer a world of immediate temptations where it’s all about the here and now. And, faced with these temptations, consumers not only cannot but (more importantly) do not want to resist them. They represent small rewards that make consumers feel better in a context of constant sacrifice and when the only thing people talk about is the crisis.

    These are optimistic reactions to the crisis. They are small temptations that provide great pleasure.
