WHAT WE DO

STRATEGY

Our innovators work with teams to set a vision and framework to define the right “jobs to be done” for every business challenge.  Whether through a Market Myth-Busting Session™ or a Trendwatch Audit™, Upstream 360 helps teams to define their strategic challenge by asking the right questions and finding the right answers.

IDEATION

Upstream 360’s creative, disciplined, and facilitated process is designed to make the unreal real. Innovisionist™ Sessions help bring product, technology, and insights to life in ready-to-test concept boards. UpstreamLined™ Demo Workshops are a lightning fast way to brainstorm prototypes that visually demonstrate a product’s “magic” through a hands-on Discovery Phase.

DESIGN

Upstream 360 designers are artistic and technical experts at delivering holistic product and package brand experiences. We partner with clients to bring to life Brand Identities, Style Guides, Key Visuals, Architecture, and Package/Shelf Communication. We also leverage deep consumer insights to create visual, descriptive, and inspiring consumer profiles and inspirational Consumer Personas.

EVALUATION

Utilizing our Consumer Panel of 360™ our researchers will Test and Learn with trained shoppers in your target demographic. We also specialize in Testimonial Research to develop language for claims, copy, and pack. Additionally, our Magically Intuitive Concept™ (MIC) Process, an immersive non-cognitive technique, brings out the “Wow” of your product’s experience.

PRODUCTION

With our in-house studio, on-location broadcast and digital capabilities, and vast production expertise, we quickly create materials for consumer-facing, internal, and customer audiences. These include “Wow” product demos and Sizzles, 3D, 2D, and Motion Graphics, Technical Product Communication, as well as Naming and Intuitive Metaphors.

LAUNCH

In-house commercialization and multi-agency partnerships, product focused videos, digital advertising (strategy, social management, e-comm, pre-roll, website), and Print (Point-of-Purchase, In-Store, Shopper Marketing, Branded Media).

CONSULT

Upstream 360 also provides an array of customized consulting, mentoring, and training programs via our Return On Innovation™ process. Expert practitioners educate and train your Team with proprietary tools and knowledge in a tailored program that builds a culture of innovation and accelerated revenue growth.
