Specifically for Bulletproof, Design Bridge, Blue Marlin, Landor, CBX, Force Majure, Elmwood, Safari Sunday, Little Big Brands, Pentagram, Dragonfly, Sterling, and WPP — Group to understand their size which would be their senior team, (as well as any turnover, if possible), the brands they work with, and any awards won.

Summary Of Our Early Findings Relevant To The Goals

  • Our first hour of research was spent verifying the 13 companies provided to us and collecting their websites, as well as doing a high level search on all of them to ensure the data that was being asked for was publicly available. We did confirm that all if it is except employee turnover data. However, we are confident that we can do a simple 12-month press scan for each company and see if anything pops up concerning any senior people leaving.
  • If any of the compnay websites are incorrect, that would have to be clearly communicated to us in any reply.
  • We were able to provide the required information for Design Bridge.
  • Please select one or more of the options provided in the proposed scoping section below.

Proposed next steps:

You need to be the project owner to select a next step.
We are proposing research that will provide for the 12 remaining companies which are Bulletproof, Blue Marlin, Landor, CBX, Force Majure, Elmwood, Safari Sunday, Little Big Brands, Pentagram, Dragonfly, Sterling, and WPP — Group their size which would be their senior team (we will provide their names, title, and their LinkedIn profile), (as well as any turnover, if possible which we will look for via a 12 month press scan), the brands they work with, and any awards won in the past 12 months. We will be focusing on their New York City Offices only, and if there is no New York City office, we will focus on their largest US office. Each request will cover two companies. Please check this box if we should proceed with this research.
Additionally, we are suggesting research that provides a history of each of the 13 companies provided to us which were Bulletproof, Design Bridge, Blue Marlin, Landor, CBX, Force Majure, Elmwood, Safari Sunday, Little Big Brands, Pentagram, Dragonfly, Sterling, and WPP — Group. This would include how and when they were started and by whom and their growth journey to present day. Please check this box if we should proceed with this research.
