a simple model
there is often a considerable difference between the stories we tell and the way they are understood. we call it the human distortion, caused by how several dimensions within each of us organize themselves to analyze the information we get to process.
the fun really starts when we get to decode this irrationality and break it down into sensible information and data - mixing some neuromarketing techniques, a pinch of human psychology, the right amount of marketing theories and a lot of good old common sense.
our simple model helps identify the mix of irrational elements at play and how they can be leveraged.
three conflicting brain layers
instinct, emotions, and reason
our brains are made of three layers: the reptilian complex, limbic system, and neocortex – respectively in control of our survival instinct, our emotions, and our reason. the way they fight with each other for supremacy over our decisions – quite like kids over their favorite toy – is tweaked bit by bit throughout our entire life by all the experiences we go through.
our challenge: design a system flexible enough to address all three brain layers and adapt according to people’s past experiences.
five complementary senses
sight, touch, taste, hearing, and smell
we all perceive the world around us through our senses. however, the cultural environment we get raised in or evolve in gives specific meanings to some of our sensorial stimulations. sounds, colors, shapes, textures, tastes or smells usually have very different connotations or generate different reactions in separate corners of the world.
our challenge: design the perfect cultural and sensorial system based on what we all have in common.
one perfectly tuned mindset
context and conditions
people behave, collect information, and analyze that information differently in different contexts. if one is not in the right mindset to recieve a specific piece of information, the message could get completely lost or ignored. therefore, building the right conditions in the right context not only guarantees but actually enables you to express you mean properly.
our challenge: align all the human and contextual attributes to get people in the right mindset.

there is a big difference between being available in a different language, and having a true and deep meaning for someone who happen to have a different way of expressing themselves and looking at the world.
brands can become much more meaningful when they stop considering themselves as a brand, and start defining themselves as what they represent and stand for. not just a logo, color codes and type treatments.
