The result of work with clients in the creative and luxury space coupled with deep dive research, BRAND(x)LUX began several years ago as an initiative to funnel academic research into the marketplace in a format that is practical and immediately applicable.
It quickly morphed into a live relationship, one between us and our clients. These client engagements highlighted the unique aspects of our services and methodology. They inspired and propelled us to come up with new methods to track progress even of something as intangible as a brand's creative strategy. They also provided the foundational key metrics for our proprietary Cultural Utility Index.
