Indeed, the involvement of such techniques bolsters the strategy behind every project, allowing the inventive sides to fl ourish and thus embody the 1HQ ideology. By embodying the ‘brand heart’ by using both sides of the 1HQ brain, every aspect of the branding anatomy comes together to give a product which Artus states is “creatively fantastic, strategically sound and commercially viable”.
