Intelligence & Research
We work best when instincts and insights come together. Our decades of experience work hand-in-hand with custom intelligence gathering that uncovers hidden information, validates ideas and reduces risk in strategic marketing decisions.
Our in-house intelligence department, Designsensory Intelligence, goes beyond the traditional, simplistic notion of research to provide real, actionable intelligence for our clients. Combining primary qualitative and quantitative methodologies and leveraging secondary data repositories like Experian’s Mosaic segmentation, we develop a complete picture of vital audiences and their behavioral drivers. All this comes together to anchor all strategic creative campaign and media decisions to maximize success.
We use data-driven insights to create strategic solutions.
Through baseline and post-campaign perceptual studies, we learn what people really think of your brand, and how our efforts push that perception in the right direction.
Integrating diversity, equity, inclusion and accessibility into your marketing is a moral as well as a business imperative. Our custom studies uncover how diverse audiences interact with your brand, and how you can improve those interactions to welcome everyone.
From travel and tourism to healthcare—and every industry in between—we build focused intelligence programs to understand how your target customers behave, what they want and recommend ways that you can seize new opportunities.
Before they can love you, they have to know you exist. We uncover a benchmark of just how well-known your brand is, and compare it to a new post-campaign measurement to gauge effectiveness of strategic marketing initiatives.
We test our campaign ideas prior to full-scale creative production to determine which ideas most effectively capture your audience’s attention—and which ideas will inspire them to action.
