Ferragamo Embraced Digital During The Pandemic And It’s Sticking With It
The global COVID-19 health crisis drove Salvatore Ferragamo, an Italian luxury goods company, to rethink the whole in-person process by breaking it down into many different pieces and deciding what could be done virtually and what could not. This led Ferragamo to ship materials samples to their customers who could feel the fabric to the touch and see the colors without any screen distortion.

“What we know is a drop, what
we don’t know is an ocean.“
– Sir Isaac Newton
Isaac Newton was (obviously) one of the forerunners of modern science. We all know the (largely untrue) story of him sitting under a tree, and an apple falls in his head, and thus gravity is “discovered”.

Experience Alchemists was created to help companies take the mundane and undifferentiated experiences they offer and turn them into truly differentiating, transcendent interactions with everyone they are connected to. We work under standard SOWS, sure. But more often than not, we find creative structures that allow our clients to get the people they need when they need them.
To that end, we’ve created Newton’s Other Apple to share what we, the Experience Alchemists, have come across that is interesting, compelling, and thought-provoking.
Let’s try to make what we don’t know a smaller ocean together.
