Nespresso / Amazon Integration
How can an established coffee system implement delivery functionality?
Redesigning a luxury coffee experience
I developed a strategy for how Nespresso could integrate with Amazon Prime, while continuing their sustainability practices. Using concept maps, customer journeys, storyboards, and vignettes, I created a guide for Nespresso employees to roll out Amazon Prime integration.
October - December 2018
Under the guidance of Austin Center for Design professors, I examined the digital and physical ecosystem of Nespresso and created visual artifacts to communicate how Nespresso stores and products would be modified by Amazon Prime integration.
Conduct design research within Nespresso stores
Create concept maps and user journeys of the revised system, for customers and employees
Create sketches, vignettes, and storyboards to communicate changes within Nespresso stores
Research & Synthesis
We visited Nespresso’s Austin-area store to experience firsthand the sales experience. By interacting with staff and fellow customers, it became clear that the design aesthetics, simplicity of use, and luxury flourishes of all branded items are the dominant factors in the user experience.
Visualizations Based on Research
Contextual inquiry (observing people in the context of their work/life) was the basis of my Nespresso research. The images above show how a photograph from research developed into a sketch, and how the sketch was implemented into a larger series of vignettes.
Employees as Users
Adding Amazon Prime functionality provides a new journey not just for the customer, but also Nespresso store employees. Employees’ interactions with the space, updated products, and new customer expectations needed to be integrated to the ecosystem.
Amazon Prime integration must include the training of staff on new functionality.
Recycling is underutilized by current Nespresso customers. Integration provides a fresh opportunity to enlist new users to use Nespresso free recycling system.
Developed a Nespresso “Employee Resource Guide” to communicate to both C-Suite executives and store staff how the Amazon Prime fits into the current system
Created high fidelity artifacts to communicate this company shift, including: concept map, user journey, revised store floor plan, and vignettes for employees
