Curion BluePrint was implemented for this approach to provide non-traditional results in the proper setting.
A series of highly engaging product stations were used, in which consumers ages 18-24 were exposed to communication elements (product description, benefits and ingredients) and interacted with multiple product attribute stimuli for packaging, color, flavor and texture.
Using our Curion BluePrint methodology, this concentrated co-creation environment blended focus groups and CLTs to allow consumers to interact and participate with the product in several stations and discuss the stimuli as a group in a moderator-led conversation.
Consumers came together in an engaging setting to comfortably express their thoughts and opinions.
This was strategically designed to capture the proper context the client was seeking.
The targeted questions revealed valuable product differentiators as well as fatal flaws to avoid – resulting in a refined and improved “blueprint” for product development.
