RAPID TESTING METHODOLOGY

Working across consumer and business sectors, from blue-chips to new-chips, our role is to create ideas with potential for growth and innovation. Our Guy & Co-Creation™ system uses rapid testing and other productive creative techniques to unlock ideas across brand projects, innovation workstreams and integrated campaigns.

WHAT WE MAKE

COMMERCIAL AMBITION

Through increased agility and rapid testing we get ideas to market faster with less risk – that’s a commercial win-win for clients operating in competitive markets with budgetary pressures. We define an idea as potentially great once we are convinced it’s both meaningful to consumers and customers and unique to the brand in its market. And truly great once our clients report real commercial gain.
