Lucid is an insight, brand and innovation consultancy with a reputation for clarity and high-level strategic thinking. We help brands and organisations better understand the people you want to connect with, unearth the insight you need and recommend a clear, business-sensible way forward.
We work alongside you, as part of your team. We have a dynamic, creative approach that helps us 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.
