Lucid are insight consultants with a reputation for clarity and high-level strategic thinking. We help brands and organisations better understand the people you want to connect with, unearthing the insight you need and recommending a clear, business-sensible way forward.
We work alongside you, as part of your team. We operate on different levels, using movement, imagery and music as well as words to get more from people. And we always aim to build towards the future, ‘closing the loop’ for you and bringing our marketing expertise to bear on identifying the implications beyond the findings.
“They are the benchmark by which we measure other agencies. They always provide a simple model or way of articulating the insight that sticks with you.”
Alex Ward-Booth, NHS formerly Danone Nutricia Early Life Nutrition

Lucid works in the UK and internationally. We offer a broad range of types of insight, but are probably best known for our work on brand equity/assets and positioning, comms – especially creative development, from early exploration of creative territories to later qualitative ad testing – and brand stretch and innovation, from opportunity analysis and concept optimisation right through to pack design and launch comms.We use a suite of insight methods, matching method to task and using both face to face methods (groups, depths and workshops) and digital methods such as online diaries/panels, mobile ethnography and consumer film. We also regularly collaborate with quantitative agencies and semioticians.
“Lucid’s fresh approach has delivered inspirational and insightful research which has really helped to drive our organisation forward.”
Jacqui Souter, VisitScotland
We learn a lot about people, obviously, in the work we do. And we learn a lot about brands; how they function and what moves them further. Here we share views from the people we meet, and observations about the people we meet, including findings from our own original research.
We are lucky to work with some great clients and are proud of the long-standing relationships we’ve built with many of them. Brands we have worked with include:
