We are experts at analyzing trends and developing frameworks for understanding how culture is changing and why. Our approach structures social signals to reveal critical patterns and emerging narratives that can become new brands, products, and services. Our skill is in uncovering the emerging stories that are missed in traditional research and providing data-driven evidence and inspirational innovation platforms to structure investment in new ideas.
