We help our clients keep up with trends, improve their offers and deliver innovation.
We connect stakeholders – customers & clients (B2B & B2C), business partners, prescriptors and team members;
In that way we do design thinking.
We called it think Tuvalu to bear in mind that sustainability and technologies are both appealing ways to make a change.
Why is it called Think Tuvalu?
Tuvalu is an island nation and UN member known primarily for 2 things. For one, they may be the first nation to be fully submerged in water due to the rise in the sea level over the next 100 years. We’re reminded that new environmental and social demands mustn’t be ignored. Second, back when internet domain names were attributed they were able to obtain .tv for themselves (much the same way France obtained .fr). They started to commercialize that license and it has become one of their primary sources of income. In order to create value, marketers must think in terms of new demands, a new paradigm. To think Tuvalu is to think innovation in a world on the move.
We Design International Market Research
We design ad’hoc methodologies, using all the resources of qualitative research.
Our scope is wide, from instant decision making research to long term insightment.
There are several projects we are proud of, among them Ethnomovies.
