BACKGROUND

During one of the all-hand meetings, I was tasked to develop a KeySmart accessory to boost sales of the KeySmart. On my end, I wanted to not just design another keychain accessory, but something that solves one of the pain points of our customers.  

FINDING THE BALANCE

I believe creating a good design that solves one of the major pain points of our customers will lead to better sales. The new challenge for me was to also make sure the cost stays low, and work with the Sales team to find the right MSRP for us to get the highest profit margin.

DESIGN OPPORTUNITY

Through my research, I found changing keys from one keychain to another can be very bothersome. The tightness of the keychain can chip off fingernails and even create injuries.

BUSINESS + DESIGN GOAL ALIGNED

MagConnect was not only the best-selling accessory by itself, but it also boosted the sales of the already-well-received KeySmart organizers.

 

MagConnect was able to solve one of our customer's pain-point with keychain accessories, but also met and exceed the business goals set by the CEO and the Sales teams.
