What our clients say


The insights which came back have been incredibly valuable to us. Had we not chosen and had the benefit of Ruth’s expertise, I am not sure that we would have realised or known the impact of kids developmental stages on digital design. I sought her out to work together in my next company.
SENIOR PRODUCT LEAD, Entertainment Corp

Ruth used a method I hadn’t even come across before in kids research and to extremely powerful effect.  I didn’t even know you could test content in that way. I don’t think anyone else is yet but experimenting & pioneering is typical of her. It opened my eyes to what’s possible as we develop new animation.

Family Fluent – Continuous Influence

We see the world through kids eyes and vary our approach according to the age and stage of development of the kids involved. The dynamics of peers and siblings enrich our findings as do opportunities for kids to problem solve and collaborate.

There’s a kaleidoscope of desires, experiences, heuristics and behaviours ready to harness and influence, if you know what to ask, when, why, who and how. Sometime we need to ask kids, other times we ask parents – the shoppers.
For purchases to be made, parents downstream need to know and appreciate what kids upstream watch, see and desire. We focus on what makes kids brands memorable to kids so that they can request them and what helps parents to accurately recall and approve of the brand when they see it at retail.

We call that CONFLUENCE.

Upstream – Downstream

Whether new product lines last two seasons or ten, you’ll want your brands to have the power to influence and convert shoppers and kid consumers fast, wherever the first encounter occurs.
Amongst the distractions of media at home or competitors on shelf, deliver the highest return on marketing, sales, design and manufacturing investment with confluence in mind.
