A bit about us…

We are specialists in design insight with offices in London and New York. Our approach is based on the principles of Design Thinking – a human-centred ethos that guides creative development. It means our insight seamlessly integrates into the creative process to inspire, guide and hone design.

We have a strong focus on FMCG, and our blue chip clients include Unilever, GSK, Reckitt Benckiser, PepsiCo and General Mills. Other clients include Diageo, Disney, Chivas Brothers, Britvic and Innocent (full list is on our website).

While we’ve built our reputation on qualitative research, we’ve recently launched a quantitative offer to ensure we are able to research design from its very conception through to launch. As such, we use an extensive range of exciting methods and approaches.

Being part of The Big Picture means being part of a supportive team with a shared vision. We give back what you put in, guiding and supporting your development, whether you’re starting afresh or are a seasoned pro.

If you’re creative, analytical and sparky, have a passion for design and how people engage with it, and are committed to delivering excellence in your work, then you might just be our kind of person

As an employee, you’ll enjoy a generous and competitive benefit package, (and might even get a chance to see the world!)

Our brand essence, Design for Real Impact, defines our brand values in a way that helps inform decision making throughout The Big Picture
