…it’s about knowledge, feelings and beliefs.
And how people share them: stories.
Stories help us understand more and learn something new.
But also reveal what remains constant.
An analogue art increasingly told in a digital way.
At Lore we focus on learning what brands must know about people, places, cultures and categories to help:
...and be part of the story.
WHAT WE DO
Research is our craft. Plain and simple.
Strategic? Of course.
Consultative? By nature.
Bespoke? As custom as it comes.
Actionable? If not, what’s the point.
Applying a process that defines and interrogates the problem, builds knowledge from different angles and packages the insight into a story that stakeholders can believe in.
Typically working across 4 core areas...
From understanding existing equity, to exploring new territories a brand can position itself in and grow from.
Revealing the human and cultural insights that can help inspire relevant and authentic ideas and content across channels.
INNOVATION & UX
From segmenting the market and pin-pointing users' habits and needs, to developing value propositions and UX for new products and services.
Providing the depth of colour and texture needed to ‘get’ people, the culture that shapes them - and how their experience of category or brand really plays out.
the stuff of Lore
6 things which define us...
The same experienced researchers working on the project from start to finish - no cameos.
Partners, Advisors, Mentors – terms often loosely thrown around.
But we truly believe in the value of working side by side with our clients, their stakeholders and any other agencies involved. It’s the way forward.
We aren’t afraid to iterate, change track and evolve our approaches as the answers start to emerge. Sometimes the best journeys mean arriving at a different place.
It may not be sexy, but it makes all the difference.
From our grip of project management to a relentless pursuit of the answer, we simply leave no stone un-turned.
TRUSTY BLACK BOOK
As a proudly independent consultancy, we work with a tried and tested group of local partners, experts, creatives and consultants. Whatever the project demands.
With most of our work being international, we thrive on the unique demands of multi-market projects. Weaving together the macro with the micro.
We’re expert in helping global brands enter, expand and adapt within the all-important APAC region.
There aren’t many sectors that we don’t have experience of.
But there are some where we thrive…
