Think.Feel.Do (The Three i’s – Insight Idea Implementation) – Grid’s Big Idea Conceptual output is the result of a 3-step process whereby an INSIGHT is the foundation behind everything we do. The IDEA is birthed from the insight which ensures everything we do from a creative output is strategically relevant and aligned to the brand. Finally, the idea is IMPLEMENTED through any touchpoint applicable to the brand and project.
