Ameritest/CY Research

Founded 1989 | 41 employees

Chuck Young, CEO

Ameritest’s data-driven insights assess both the visual and verbal territories that a brand can own, ways to tell the brand’s story and how to bring that story to life. We know that a brand is a collection of memories built by the consumer. Through our patented process, we determine what message consumers are receiving, what brand memories they’re building and if those align with the brand’s intended communication. We help brands find opportunities that are a natural fit, where they can stretch and help them avoid pushing too far. And, our methodology doesn’t box in the creative.
