  3. O R I G I N In the late 80’s, in the field of research and advanced marketing there was emerging the need to work on innovation and the creation of new paths of action and thoughts, both inside the Research Institutes and Companies. Future Concept Lab was born out of the intuition to substitute in a certain way the trends followed passively, with the creation of concepts that are new worlds of reference that suggest new modes of thinking and behaving. How the idea of creating Future Concept Lab was born? (the original name from 1988 till 1995 was Trends Lab)

  4. M I S S I O N The activity of the international observatory, continuously tested, was launched by Future Concept Lab in the early 90’s and has demonstrated to be increasingly useful and necessary, as an integration to the traditional research outcomes, that can be strengthened by the data and interpretative hypothesis produced during the ethnographic observation from “below”. What contribution of research, knowledge and consultancy can we supply to our clients?

  5. Our challenge is the demonstration that the quality of thinking and the people’s normal life can be supported and integrated by the creative and innovative activity of the Companies that follow the 6 Rof relational marketing: relevance, resonance, reciprocity, recognising, and above all the responsibility and the respect towards the intelligence and the sensibility of people. www.futureconceptlab.com www.geniuslocilab.com www.mindstylemagazine.com M I S S I O N What contribution of research, knowledge and consultancy can we supply to our clients?

  6. It is possible to choose the right tools for understanding the signals and the occasions of the present: the future is today and the traditional scenario-making takes the risk of being inconclusive and misleading, limiting itself to imagine the ideas figured today into the future. Our way of working with scanarios is on the contrary a reconciliation of the market’s context with the Company’s character, successfully reaching the definition of concrete indications and hypothesis. S C E N A R I O S Why don’t we believe in traditional scenario-making?

  7. M E T H O D O L O G Y Starting from the concept of strategic innovation, we began to integrate all the research methodologies used in this challenge and we began to consider the way that all the disciplines (from sociology to social psychology, from antropology to semiology) could have an important role, contributing in this direction. This way we have formed a interdisciplinary and regular group of 20 professionals that participate in the specific projects: Global Concept Positioning, Trend Analysis, Company Check up, Genius Loci Profile, Brand Equity Study, Concept Test, U&A: use and attitude, advertising pre and post test, product test. In which way is the methodology of FCL different?

  8. M I N D S T Y L E S P R O G R A Mfor brand positioning The way we define a brand DNA, its potential target and competition is by employing a research program called Mindstyles. The program is formed by 16 behavioural areas devided into 76 concepts related to people’s needs, expectations, imagery, actions and reactions to the market. Mindstyles Program Deep & Daily Banal Extra How do we work on brand and its positioning?

  9. H A P P I N E S S P R O G R A Mtarget analysis In order to understand the life context of the consumers of all ages and social conditions, we use the international research program dedicated to the happy moments of daily life, described through photographs and written diaries by the subjects themselves. The Institute bases its studies on a data base that contains few thousands happy episodes. How do different generations behave? Which are the references and the values?

  10. G E N I U S L O C I P R O G R A Mforeign markets analysis In order to interpret the globalization phenomena in cultural and commercial level, identifying the threats and the opportunities in each market, we have been following the evolution of the consumption patterns in 20 countries, underlining the uniqueness and character of each country and market. Africa Australia Belgium Brazil China Colombia Finland France Germany Greece Holland Iceland India Israel Japan Russia Spain Sweden UK Usa How do global and local meet together? Which are their dynamics?

  11. In this way, our clients can recieve precise indications for the consumption trends of the country and the specific market they are interested in, and can define entry strategies and strengthen their position in the very specific market.

  12. S T R E E T S I G N A L S P R O G R A Mconsumption trends analysis Listening to people’s spontaneous messages is the best way to explore the consumer world and this is also why Future Concept Lab refers to the word societing rather than marketing.

  13. In order to give voice to people’s expression of emotions we have been collecting thousands of images that capture what we call street signals. The spontaneous signs coming directly from street observation. More than 50,000 high quality images come from our corrispondants from 40 diffrent cities around the world.

  14. C O O L H U N T E R S It was back in the 1994 when we started to deploy young professionals and researchers around the world who would be able to become those highly sensible “antennas”on a specific territory for us, participating to our projects of observation and international research. We started with the observation of 5 metropolis (London, Paris, Milan, Tokyo and New York) and each year ever since we are inserting new cities up to the present number (40). Therefore, we consider our correspondents like our windows to the world scene. What is a cool hunter or a cult searcher?

  15. A cool hunter “reads” in a spontaneous and direct way Street Signals and Body Signals, present in a specific city: everything that is fresh and interesting (cool) of the expressions emerging in daily life, related to the world of young and adults with a particular attention to the 4 P of new marketing: the people (photos taken in the streets), the places (as for instance the new stores and bars, described and photographed), the plans (for instance new cultural tastes, films or magazines of success, events) and the projects (as for instance the activities of universities and institutions, during working or leisure time). The cult searcher - older than the cool hunter who’s usually around 25 y.old - are young researchers who work for us not only for gathering the trendy “signals”, but also participating to ad hoc projects that the companies entrust us to bring in conclusion.
