Love Brands is a research-based consultancy located in Paris and operating internationally. We help our clients to create, nurture and develop international brands. Our added value is the combination of solid marketing thinking and creative qualitative methodologies. Our methods are crafted to optimise the depth and impact of the findings and enable a more fruitful client-consumer connection.
We see brands as evolving platforms of engagement and interaction between a client company and its consumers. After the initial spark of early commitment, the relationship can either evolve and strengthen, or fade away. In a world of fragmented lifestyle and plethoric choice, ensuring solid engagement from consumers and sustaining it over the long-term becomes an increasing challenge. Yet, consumers are ready to engage with international brands that provide deeper meaning and emotions, and bring true value to their lives. In this context, we believe the role of qualitative research is to provide a space for gathering deeper insights, for shaping brand meaning, and for inspiring future brand development.
Qualitative research has moved into a new dimension, with endless exciting possibilities:
The art of deeper connection lies in the choosing and blending,
the smart crafting of the process in terms of tools, techniques,
time and space.
A research process is a human journey: for the consumers, the
clients and the research partners. It is the opportunity to bring
people together, to use the energy of team work and to unleash the thinking and creative power in each and every one of us.
We develop and implement tailor-made and flexible research processes around some key principles. We believe in:

Love Brands has brought its expertise in international brand development to a raft of blue chip clients.
As a coordinating research company, we understand the need to combine depth, getting closer to the core common basic human needs, with rigorous international marketing thinking. We believe that a key to the success of international research lies in the choice and management of our international research partners.
We also enjoy working for other research companies around the world. We feel that we can better serve them because we also operate as a coordinating agency ourselves.
