Sample. Save. Enjoy.

SAMPLEit is an automated retail sample kiosk. Customers are able to purchase a sample product for $1 and receive 
a coupon for $2 off the shelf price of that product. SAMPLEit began as a startup run by Redbox. I worked with the GM from conception to design every aspect from the branding, to the machine itself.

Full autonomy over design and engineering. Responsible for writing 200 page technical guide for developing interface, writing 40 page master engineering brief, and creating the brand guideline.

Testing in Walmart revealed 
the SAMPLEit kiosk created greater than 20% lift in coupon redemptions, and lifted both product and category sales.

Key member of the 4 person team that built SAMPLEit into a $200M business.
