We recently on-boarded a new ceramic factory for our Starbucks North America business. With on-boarding a new factory, we needed to explore their capabilities as they are relevant to marketplace trends. We sent images from in-store shopping and online research with color specifications and descriptions for sampling.
After the factory created samples and provided technique specs, I implemented the techniques to 3D renderings in KeyShot. The 3D renderings and physical samples were then presented to Starbucks for future products. We will continue to use these techniques for in-house products, as well as other Starbucks markets.
