Innovation is the foundation for brand growth – but the context for innovation is changing. New tensions are emerging, markets are more fragmented and consumers are more demanding than ever. 

Successful innovation is more than just creating products and services. It’s about delivering memorable and differentiating experiences that are anchored in a deep understanding of people’s needs and tensions in specific moments. 

​We guide and inspire you through all your innovation challenges, from identifying the crucial moments of opportunity and where to play, to when and how to deliver the ultimate experience. 

We apply the latest thinking in behavioural economics and cognitive science, and use technology to get you closer to the moments that matter to give you the best chance of market success.
