Overview

Background

Cana was on an audacious mission to create the world’s first molecular beverage printer, able to print any beverage from molecularized ingredients from a cartridge mixed with water, sugar or alternative sweeteners, and alcohol or carbonation.

This beverage printer was designed to democratize small scale manufacturing of beverages, providing infinite choice and unlimited consumption with less waste as reducing plastic, cans, and CO2 was part of our mission.

Problem

The user can get overwhelmed from the hundreds of beverages our platform offered, and have a hard time exploring the catalog or finding a specific beverage.

Opportunity

We can provide partners an interface to create their own beverages based on the cartridge and based on our own knowledge of how ingredients taste when paired together.

Solution

We allowed users to discover beverages by presenting collections of beverages available through the home feed, based on their consumption patterns, time of day, cartridge availability, and consumption by similar users.

I designed search on mobile to support multiple types of queries and updated browsing on both mobile and device to support filters to get to relevant beverages quickly.

Scenario 1
Search for beverages on mobile
Scenario 2
Browse beverages by category on mobile
Scenario 3
Browse beverages by category on Cana One

Role

I lead end-to-end experience on beverage search & browse on mobile, as well as improved browse on device.

Team

I collaborated with Head of Product, Product Manager, Head of Software, Head of Firmware for product definition and feasibility and presented final work to 2 in-house software engineers and an engineering team located in India.
