research

innovative, collaborative & critical

To understand the impact of public arena initiatives, or to help build reputation and understanding we question and challenge; we seek out opinion and differences.

To do this we devise bespoke and scalable research, consultation, interactive workshops and surveys. Only this way can we find consensus for service, product and messaging design.


Good research and public consultation design adapts to the landscape of the problem. Exacting techniques, in the right combination, lets us question, work with and listen to broad and specific audiences as needed.

The techniques we use include:

  • large scale qualitative and quantitative surveys
  • qualitative interviewing
  • focus groups and interactive workshops
  • facilitation
  • consultation

scrutiny that stands up

Our programmes are designed to fit the individual challenge. Based on guiding principles and using a range of techniques that test public, stakeholder and consumer attitudes to properly inform, the outcome lead to real value for our clients.


we engage digitally

Through digital channels we can gain additional depth to product and service use studies or put polarised communities together to test assumptions and iterate development work.
