Creating an e-commerce experience that puts the user first
In 2014, I was lead UX designer on a team redesigning Keurig’s e-commerce site. The primary goal of the project was to create a cohesive responsive e-commerce experience. The secondary goal was to address the brand strategy of Keurig and Green Mountain Coffee.
The project was initiated by hosting a user journey-mapping session at Havas. This session validated a Functional Requirements Document (RFD) that listed the initial features that the experience was to have.
The prioritized features list was then evaluated by representatives of the development team and given a time estimation. This enabled the team to divide features into: MVP features to be built for launch, Second iteration features to be implemented 3-6 months after initial launch, and Third iteration features to be implemented another 3-6 months after that.
The MVP Information Architecture and site structure was then designed around the features and persona goals. The data structure included a robust tagging and navigation system that allowed different personas to navigate the site in different ways.

Once the IA was finalized, work began on the initial wireframes for top priority pages such as Home, Brewer Home, and Flavor Home pages.
