Our approach

To succeed it is critical to define the challenge, specifically to be clear on who you are targeting and what you want them to do. Then we will expand the challenge into a clear, barrier lead brief reflecting the path to purchase.

Starting the workshop we will share expectations to achieve clarity on the end goal, and the process before opening the creative part of the workshop. To bring everybody on the same page we will present the background and ensure that everybody understands the path to purchase concept and the brand equity.

Individual and group execises will help us create on-pack executions that overcome the barriers filling a wall of ideas to share back, for discussion and identifying themes. Focussing on brand equity, purpose and brand heritage we will make the team understand that iconic executions are ownable. After presenting back and final discussion we will agree which ideas to illustrate and which to pursue further. This will help to give people an iconic idea and ask them to create more executions based on the same strategy.

  • challenges

    From our experience we know that key issues often are

  • Briefing packaging before critical factors (eg concept or pricing strategy) are locked
  • Objectives in briefs are too generic eg lacking in purchase barriers
  • Objectives are changed throughout the design process
  • Ask for design changes unrelated to objectives or design principles
  • Signing off without meeting success criteria, and fixing on the fly
  • close
