_Decode a person's culture, and you unlock their world. We help to make that happen.
_Viv Chambers (Founder)
Prior to Bricolage, I cut my teeth in various research agencies, founded one of my own (Pathfinder Research) and have enjoyed stints as strategic planner working for iconic clients and agencies in Dublin, the UK and beyond.
Along the way I have read widely and made formal study of psychology, anthropology and psychotherapy to bring a more person-led and culturally-driven understanding to the work. I occupy the space in the middle of the venn diagram somewhere between Consumer Research, Cultural Insight and Strategic Planning.

Before Bricolage, I was a Director and shareholder of B&A in Dublin, having joined in 1997. There I had been a qualitative research specialist working on a very wide range of brands - from iconic, global brands to small, local Irish start-ups.
Qualitative research is all about understanding people and how they interact with their environment and their culture. Joining Bricolage allows me the opportunity to use that qualitative understanding as a springboard to developing breakthrough brand and innovation strategies.

_Hannah Nolan (Producer)
I provide structure, a solid foundation and solutions to get things done. Before joining the team here I worked in medical, property, retail and hospitality sectors so I bring with me a wide breadth of experience.
Studying journalism stoked my passion for research and methods of storytelling. To construct a narrative you have to gather the facts and then piece them together in a way that signifies meaning. There's an art to that. That's what we do at Bricolage.
_Orlaith Kelly (Senior Researcher & Strategist)
Prior to joining Bricolage, I undertook a dissertation at Dublin Institute of Technology exploring the role of social media and bloggers in shaping consumer taste culture.During this process, I developed a keen interest in understanding people, how they interact with culture and how challenging it is for brands, in a world of fragmented attention, to maintain a distinctive and impactful image to set themselves apart from competitors.
With this interest in mind, I was lucky enough to join the team here in Bricolage after completing my degree in 2016. While here I have been fortunate enough to work on a wide range of research and strategy projects for clients in Ireland, the UK and America.
_Colman Walsh (UX Associate)
I have been working in user experience design for over 15 years. As an alumnus of two world-class UX agencies - Sapient and iQ Content - I have worked with blue-chip clients in San Francisco, New York, London, Brussels and Dublin. My expertise runs across the entire spectrum of usability and UX: from research and strategy to design and prototyping.
_Pearl O'Rourke PhD (Associate)
I work across product design, service design and innovation R&D as both a teacher and practitioner. Like qualitative research, human-centred design is all about empathising with others, identifying their needs, and conceptualising ways to make better solutions for those people.
I love being part of Bricolage. The variety of clients and industries we work with means there are always new things to discover and new opportunities to rebuild those discoveries into something surprising and useful.
