Deep Blue Thinking – An agile state of mind: How Deep Blue Thinking helped Checkatrade connect with customers and trades

Feeling Mutual – How mobile qualitative for the Institute of Competitive Socialising teed up authentic research with millenials

Feeling Mutual used video and creative stimulus to win over both a client who was cynical about ‘traditional research’ and the project’s millennial participants. The research gave the client huge confidence to launch its product in a new market.

Magenta – Transforming perceptions of transgender people with On Road Media for their All About Trans project

Magenta addressed a challenging topic head-on with a considered, creative approach. The client was delighted with the result and the ‘media toolkit’ output gave the project longevity beyond the research itself.
