  • When Pizza Turns a New Leaf

    Sir John Hegarty, the man behind the Levi's jeans and Lynx deodorant ads, once claimed, "Music is 50% of an ad's success." Yet even today very few metrics are regularly applied within the planning and creative processes to measure the value of music and sound to a brand's marketing. more

  • Bring the Mayor to Your Doorstep
    Few things are as irresistible as a mobile game that lets players rack points up during waiting-room or bus-ride lulls.

Solution: Hook up ... more

  • Do You Love Us?
    "Our experience suggests that most companies use a crude approach to gathering vital customer data," says David Jackson in an article at MarketingProfs.
