Kitsuné 2010

Branding, Graphic Design

CLOTHES LABEL

Photoshop and Illustrator

MAISON KITSUNÉ is a fashion and music label from France. The name ‘Kitsuné’ with an accent grave is a playful French twist on the Japanese word for fox, their mascot. The challenge was to adapt the brand to the fashion capital of New York City. The approach was to combine the styles of Japanese Origami and

French Embroidery, giving the label international appeal. Kitsuné urban casual apparel of high quality and craftsmanship would fit right at home in the upscale Meatpacking District. A consistent brand image was developed through distinctly French colors, which translated through their logo, typeface and packaging.

Business to Business Relationships I supported retail operations by receiving incoming shipments from designers and vendors. I input the inventory into Quickbooks accounting software, assigned SKUs and priced them, before tagging them for display in the store.

Customer Relationship Management I called customers to inform them about brands they were interested in or specific products they had requested. Using the E-commerce platform Magento, I prepared and shipped their orders. In case their item was out of stock, or damaged, they would also be informed of alternatives, for exchanges, refunds or store credit.

Assembly holds several parties. Invites were sent out through mailing list and Facebook Events. By taking pictures of attendees and giving an exclusive discount code, we are able to showcase Assembly as a lifestyle brand, reward our fans and increase brand loyalty at the same time.

segment. The goal was to create shared value through collaboration, by having engaging experiences that are fun yet elegant. In order to differentiate themselves from their main competitor in the take home ice cream market, Ben and Jerry’s, they would need to steer clear of gimmicky advertising and show their commitment to pure, rich, and indulgent all natural ingredients.

Haagen-Dazs

Teammates: Gabriela Gonzalez and Tracey Lin

20 semi-finalists (prototypes)

MARKET RESEARCH INSIGHTS

5 finalists

Originally positioned as a premium product, recent campaigns have reacted by targeting the mass market and a younger audience. More successful campaigns had immersive experiences highlighting them as a caring, responsible producer and the use of natural ingredients, such as the Help the Honeybees and Five integrated campaigns developed by Goodby, Silverstein and Partners.

Marketing | Haagen-Dazs Harvest

Haagen Dazs is unable to compete simply on price. They need to emphasize quality, natural ingredients and the eating experience. Potential substitutes such as frozen yogurt have led consumers to focus on healthier options with a Do-It-Yourself approach. In order to give more choice to the consumer and show their commitment to the environment and using natural ingredients, flavors

would be crowdsourced from Farmers’ Markets in New York City, in partnership with the non-profit organization Grow NYC. Representatives from each farm can choose to submit flavor suggestions using their produce of which 20 will be selected and prototyped by Haagen-Dazs for a tasting event, where the 5 of the most popular flavors will be produced.

For a limited time, a booth will be set up to collect a database of contacts, of which 200 will be emailed about the final event, where the first 100 to RSVP may attend. Based on a select number of taste attributes, such as color, flavor, texture and vibe, Haagen-Dazs can receive feedback on consumers’ tastes, for prototyping 20 flavors. When the final 5 flavors have been selected, participants would be matched with a flavor that best matches their answers, keeping them in suspense until voting is over.

Ethnographic Research

TAGVERSE is a social media and website aggregator platform that recommends the most relevant content according to user’s preferences. The aim was to disrupt the internet browsing landscape. A series of interviews, user testing and survey revealed key insights. The main problem was that context in the form of tags and keywords was stuck in the frame-

work of websites. Visiting favorite websites was the no. 1 activity that people did most frequently, but also wanted an improved browsing experience for. Using metadata in the form of tags and keywords, and taking the idea that the browser could learn and change over time, an algorithm would generate stories and topics that would allow users to surf in a targeted and meaningful manner.

What if distraction was useful?

If money and technology was no object, what feature would you most want to have? When I open up my browser, read emails, the next tab would be a display of all the interesting things from favorites. If I could have my own dashboard with a newsfeed of the top trending as an RSS feed. There could be a tab called News, instead of most visited, organized by favorite categories/folders. I want to spend less time trying to organize, but have the browser organize it for me.

When asked, How often do you browse the internet for these activities?

1) It is not necessarily bad to be too distracted or focused, but maybe neither is being done efficiently.

2) We appreciate user-friendly browser interfaces. The problem may not be with the browser, but with all the different website frameworks instead.

3) Users want their content sorted automatically, rather than doing it themselves.

2) Rank on scale of 1 - 5 Convenient 5 Useful 5 Informative 4.5 Radical 4 Fun 4 3) Rank (put a dot) between Convenient ._ _ Hassle Useful . _ _ Pointless Informative . _ _ Repetitive Radical . _ _ Old Fun . _ _ Boring 4) How can this improve: Trending is similar to flipboard, but their algorithm could be improved. Differentiate, have visual appeal, more discovery and a better user experience. Suggestion for Beyonce’s profile, have a short writeup on who she is, Apple Tag, Several peaks. Shows a three or four liner about when it was introduced, When Steve Jobs died.

5) Group discussion Would you find this valuable, would you use it? Yeah, flipboard is a lot less social, the algorithm is not as good as hoped. This merges everything friends are talking about, great way to stay current at work, friend life or what is out in the world. How much would you value this? I’m wondering about who you follow, get it reorganizes. What if I didn’t want to see someone’s story that had a lot of likes? Otherwise it’s great. What did you like? It blends in what you want to follow, your social network, knowledge and conversations, gossip and topics. I really like the tag page. You can expand on it give a lot of details. Charts, the full scoop on what has happened, what is happening, what’s been talked about on this tag. The profile page is neat, easy to organize. Stops people from feeling lost, like the column. Maybe have a column of trending conversations with friends that gather interest. I like that you consider keywords and influencing people to use hashtags. What did you not like? Only that you can add more to make it better. How informative it is depends on how good the algorithm is.

If you make it look really cool, Trending, mouse goes over to fashion thesis, magnifies, recommendations that shoot, play around with the visual effects, making it a lot more interactive, more discovery, if they had a music site, play short clips as a preview before you go into the page.

THE ETHOS

IT IS LIKE

TRENDING

The landing page instantly tells you what are the most talked about current and trending topics, based on how often they are mentioned in your network of favorite websites and social media accounts. For people who want to sift through all the noise, this is a neat way to summarize what’s happening.

WHO YOU FOLLOW LINKING ACCOUNTS

Unlike current reader apps, this allows you to follow more types of media such as music and even video. Users can link their favorite accounts and websites that they want to hear the most from. Here for example, the algorithm senses that io9 and wired are similar and will push more related content under the category of Technology to you.

Senior Thesis | Tagverse

Here you get the most recent and popular updates from your favorites, especially those you interact more closely with. Tags or keywords are highlighted in orange, as sensed by Tagverse. It pushes only the top and best stories related to your interests and network. You can even filter what website or social media platform you want news from.

WEB PRESENCE PAGE

For a tag associated with a business page or public account, this page shows you their entire web presence. You can see their latest posts or what they are tagged in and get instant alerts. The highlighting feature is an also avenue to allow different businesses to recommend each other and gain joint coverage.

MY PROFILE

My Profile is private to you or your friends on Tagverse. The user can write a personal description and highlight tags that she wants to be associated with. This would affect the user’s feeds to show more of their favorites. Users can also add widgets such as klout to track their influence.

TOPICS

Topics is a place for the researchers and geeks in us to follow streams of content under categories. If a subcategory is deemed important enough to have a category on its own, it can be highlighted.

DISCOVER

Tagverse suggests tags for more effective outreach. You can also learn about topics or content. These are recommended based on similarity to what she has input right now, or what other users like her are following and posting.

TAG PAGE

ADVANTAGES

In looking for a specific tag such as the iPad Mini, we can see what it is, what has been written about it, and even specific events associated with it, as you can see at the peaks. If there is a tag or keyword like Ipad Mini 2 that is suddenly being used a lot it will be at the top of the related tags, and even show as trending. Senior Thesis | Tagverse
