We felt that we needed to create our own methodology to help us address the modern
market need to create brands that are far more consumer centred in approach and offering.
The Human Brand Theory™ is Design Thinking inspired brand construction process that
relies heavily on psychology, sociology and other social/ human sciences to help us build
brands that add more value to peoples lives, thus creating more attachment and that are
more desirable to begin with.
The end result is the following, the creation of brands that are more:
The Human Brand Theory 11
“I am your
If we start to understand how peoples
minds and “hearts” are connected. Then
we can start to understand that wants,
life goals and desires of people, which
means we can better understand how a
brand can add value to peoples lives.
What does it do?4
The methodology says that we need to
start to better understand human
behaviour across as many audience
segments as possible.
The Human Brand Theory™ is driven by
the obsession to understand human and
societal behaviour and the resulting
patterns, as well as better understanding
why these patterns are being observed.
Based on the behavioural patterns
analysed, we are far better enabled to
understand how brands can tap into
subconscious desire and needs in order
to add more real value to the lives of
The Human Brand Theory 12
We then use this understand of peoples
wants, life goals and desires to define a
more human centred brand that is always
driven by adding value.
This process helps us to build better brands
that are more effective at resonating with
people, creating subconscious goal
activation and create communication and
engagement activities that will develop
powerful memory structure, which in turn
makes your brand more relevant,
memorable, meaningful and of value to
“This allows to build truly human centred, or
as we call it, human inspired brands”
The Human Brand Theory 13
95% of consumer decision making is subconscious.
In the modern super competitive world of brands, consumers are becoming more and
more engaged and bombarded with information and competitive offerings. The end
result is a situation where it is becoming increasingly difficult for brands to compete for
share of mind and heart. It is therefore essential to more effectively create brands that
speak to peoples hearts and minds. In simple terms, you need a brand that can
resonate with people on a subconscious level - in order to do this, we need to be far
more scientific and human behaviour focused than ever before.
The Human Brand Theory™ is built on multiple human sciences and disciplines in order to
ensure a process that is as scientific and robust as possible. These processes are
sequenced and utilised in order to gain insights and consumers drivers, and as such our
process are exceptionally effective at taking the insights and translating them into meaning
platforms and experiences that build memory structures, attachment and connection points
that can help to keep the brand top of mind and always considered.
Why does The Human Brand Theory™ matter?
