Our fastSCREEN™ consumer panels provide a fast and cost-effective way of screening "leading ideas" with consumers to help identify the "winning concepts" to take forward.  They are designed to be used following traditional brainstorming workshops, and on most projects, we randomly screen around 20-24 "mini-concepts", including 1 or 2 competitive benchmarks. Results can be available within 24 hours.  Recent fastSCREEN™ projects have been run in Argentina, Brazil, China, France, Germany, India, Italy, UK and the USA. Copywriting, artist and translation services are available as required.  To find out more, take a look at our top tips for idea screening and watch the movie.
