The Collage Technique

Collage (Schlackman, 1989: Solomon et al., 1999; Schiffman and Kanuk 2000: Moisander and Valtonen, 2006) is a projective technique that can be described as a method in which participants are asked to represent a topic or phenomenon visually by composing and gluing together a collage of images drawings and texts on a piece of cardboard or paper (Moisander and Valtonen, 2006; 96).

From this representation, an interpretation is made using a perceptual diagram that differentiates three perceptual levels; observation level, evaluative level and levels of values and feelings. The observation level considers the most objective image about the resources of the city, including tangible resources, such as infrastructure, urban development and buildings and intangible resources such as traditions, customs and personality traits associated with the residents (Kotler et al., 1993.) The evaluative level reveals their attitudes towards each one of the issues identified in the preceding level and, finally, the last level reflects the subjective perception of the city, linked with the values and feelings that it transmits (Laaksonen et al., 2006).
