Our process begins and ends with research. We translate research insights into marketing and business strategy by uncovering cultural insights that create new opportunities and meanings for brands. Working closely with our clients to understand their business and their customers and applying that knowledge to meet their objectives.

Media & Analytics
Our approach to media/analytics hinges on a precise target definition and a clear quantified objective, specific to targeted reach, engagement or conversion goals. We begin our investigation by collaborating with the creative team on ideal parameters for space, file size, and/or technology to support the campaign’s messaging, brand requirements, and call to action. All historical results are assessed. We then evaluate the range of available media vehicles and prepare a recommendation prioritizing those that best deliver to the target, metric objective, and creative needs. Our planning and negotiation are driven by stringent results forecasting, which serves as a benchmark for measuring campaign effectiveness and informing ongoing optimization.

In-store digital media has transformed our shopping behavior. However, many retailers spend all their time, energy, and money aligning internal teams and coordinating the installation of digital signage systems – while all too often, content and content strategy are an afterthought.
Our retail group focuses on enhancing the customer retail experience by using innovative technologies to create fully integrated brand experiences. We bring together years of traditional and digital media, store strategy, and technology to provide a holistic platform for creating successful in-store digital implementations for retailers.
