Cocktails are lovely at a party, but it's such a pain to tend bar instead of enjoying the festivities instead of reveling with your guests. Wouldn't it be delightful if you had a robot to mix drinks for you?
Enter Bartendro™, the world's first cocktail-mixing robot.
This product was dreamed up by a couple of makers and launched via Kickstarter in 2011. The Kickstarter was so successful that they reached out for help assembling the bots. I spent several summery afternoons assembling and packing cocktail robots and feasting on cheap pizza.
I designed the brand and marketing materials, UI and directed the photo shoot (you can even see a bit of my arm in the background of the shot used in this ad). The final photo required significant post-processing to convey the mood and tone of the brand.

User Interface Design
The Bartendro UI was designed using Bootstrap and created to be used on full-size and mini tablets. Clumsy fingers and slippery surfaces were taken into account during development, and the design underwent several enthusiastic rounds of user testing under real-party conditions before release.
