The truth is out there

Big thinking starts with our strategic services department. We’re a clever bunch, you see. An expert team of planners, thinkers and doers that develop knowledge and insights to drive our creativity.

Ok, we know we’ve mentioned this once or twice, but it’s so integral to everything we do we’ll say it again: our focus is on knowledge before assumption. Through insight, inspiration and innovation, we ensure our brand
strategy is grounded in audience truths. It’s the reason we create bigger and better ideas for the ambitious brands
we partner with.

"We generate new insight and uncover information to inform the creative and strategic process."

Paul, Big Planning Director

Big thinking starts here

Strategic planning starts with a good old-​​fashioned chat. Our strategic services team conducts desk and bespoke research on behalf of our clients, covering both qualitative and quant­itative studies. The audience insights we gain then form our strategic response. We might even introduce one of our specialist innovation programmes too, covering everything from new product devel­opment to packaging formats and channel planning.

See, told you we were a clever bunch.
