Our research design may not be what you expected,
but it is what you need. The results will enlighten you.

We are driven by your initial business question, which we will clarify and refine for you. We empathize with your problem from the beginning and deliver clear answers until the end.

We do not sell a research methodology because it is fancy or trendy. Guided by empirical evidence, we always go back to the problem posed and the target group to consult. Both determine which diagnostic tools we ultimately select to best address the actual business issues at stake.

A scientific basis

  • Tried and trusted: in-depth interviews and group discussions, ethnography
  • Digital biotope: skype interviews, online diaries & blogs, social listening
  • Non-invasive: cognitive interviews from the fields of forensics and semiotics
  • Interactive: co-creation workshops with live illustrators
  • Creative: professional actors use pantomime to interact with consumers

What sets us apart?

We feel responsible for delivering what you looked for and beyond. We go the extra mile in creative conception, research service and qualitative output.

The art of conversation

Conversation is an art. You can expect flowing dialogues with your customers, imaginative vocabulary, rich verbatim. Asking good questions looks pretty easy but requires professional moderation skills! The ultimate art: have people open up and talk without having to ask any questions.

Masters of text

We are experts in understanding lines and between the lines. We are MASTERS OF UNSTRUCTURED TEXT. We decode meaning. Hand us over your big verbatim data and let us extract the story. Put our team to the test!

Powered by ArtificiaI Intelligence

We blend human intelligence and AI. We use the machine to manage huge quantities of text, but we are responsible for the coding. Because identifying the relevant indicators in the language is what we are trained for.

Excellent moderation & facilitation

We excel in moderation, facilitation, and interviewing. We harvest data ourselves and guaranty a constant level of quality. Same for the qualitative analysis, interpretation, and subsequent storytelling.

Eye-opening, lasting results

Our clients need us to open the blinders everyone has about their own industry. And they cherish the long-term validity of our results, which go far beyond the actual scope of the initial request. We deliver far-reaching analysis of people understanding and ultimately long-term market strategies for sustainable business.

Lively presentations

Last but not least, you will experience a lively presentation and impactful internal roll-out of the research results. Our oral presentations (whether in-person or digital) leave an imprint of energy and passion. They are conducted with the audience profile in mind and built to be interactive as well as entertaining.

... And we work surprisingly fast.

Our processes are streamlined and fast-paced, our thinking is high tempo, and the research results are always delivered on time.
