In order to tackle consumer focused challenges, we need to understand the cultural meanings ingrained in the world around us. In the Culture and Trends team, we strive to bring practical and actionable insights to clients through Commercial Semiotics.

We know Semiotics can be confusing, and it can often be unclear how to apply the take-outs to your day-to-day objectives. With this in mind, we have designed our offer to cut through this uncertainty without diluting the richness or rigor behind it. We pride ourselves on the promise that we equip clients with understandable, tangible insights and recommendations by drawing on the foundations of Semiotic academic principles.
