Cultural analysis

The applied analysis of cultural phenomenon, often including advertising and media products, in order to provide context for a client's business or insight into a market. This may be conducted in conjunction with interview-based research, but it may also be carried out quite independently, since it can rely entirely on publicly available visual and textual data.
