The company will focus on integrating research by developing the message and medium together.

Gibbons said it is difficult to get alignment in today's research market, which is why he and Washer decided to launch Work. 

He said: "If you think about it, you've got creative agencies using groups that typically only they attend, media planners using TGI, DM planners looking at response data, and digital agencies using their own specialists. If I was a marketing director, I would want viewing facilities packed to the rafters with all of my various planners."

Together, Gibbons and Washer have more than 10 years' experience as researchers, planners and strategists.

Most recently, Gibbons pioneered the use of neuro-science in the creation of PHD's award-winning Neuroplanning system.

The Clinton Partnership is an advertising agency set up by Simon Clinton, a former McCann-Erickson director who worked on the General Motors business across Europe.
