“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 falling on his head and thus gravity is “discovered”.
Newton was also an alchemist, searching for a way to turn lead into gold. Or the mundane into the beautiful and valuable. That was his other apple.
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.
