To identify key cultural shifts that can inspire long-term innovation, we look for inspiration at the nexus of consumer, culture and category macro trends. We’ll dive into smart secondary research, take a look at syntax and visual codes and cues in the category … and talk to true experts in the space – star bartenders, master distillers and writers in the beverage industry. From there, we develop what we call “dig sites” – macro platforms that are the springboard for a lively day-long Ideation Sprint. The group will build out ideas together and identify the ones with the most energy — which The Sound then optimizes and scrappily pressure tests with consumers.
Having such a nimble, iterative approach to innovation leads to ideas that can quickly proceed to creative and product development briefing. Additionally, including a multi-functional team in our Ideation Sprints ensures that the ideas have buy-in … and are based in reality, when you start including representatives from research and development. Along with a slew of inspiring concepts, a new strategic process emerged — one that sets a foundation for the future of innovation at the company that all employees can rally around.
