Role: UX Designer


Ahmad owns a well known company called Live Well that focuses on house décor and he wants to expand the company by launching a second brand. 


Launch Rest Well, a company that will include sofas and couches in the repertoire. 


Live Well has had tremendous success, and for years customers have been wondering when they would sell furniture. Five years later, Ahmad is ready to launch Rest Well. However, he is nervous of how his new company will be perceived by his loyal customers. With this in mind his concerns include:

Challenge #1: Ensuring Rest Well has as much success as Live Well
Challenge #2: Have the modern and fashionable furniture match the company's look and feel


A panel of marketing experts that specialize in retail provided advice on how a furniture brand should market themselves. The panel included four experts with five or more years of experience. The goal was to get their expertise on what Rest Well should do to match the success of Live Well.

Rest Well thrives on being a modern brand. So, colors that are fresh and stray away from being dull were top of mind. In order to stand out from the competition, it was important to select a main color that is not common. In addition, adding crisp images of the furniture became a top priority. To execute this, couches that were front facing and had trendy decor were the go-to choice. In addition, showcasing the work that goes on behind the scenes at Rest Well were incorporating to instill customer loyalty and trust.



Working with a company that specializes in furniture was interesting, because I had to hone in on what is being presented to the consumer. I had to ask myself if the way the products were displayed would entice me to make a purchase myself. In the end, I believe the research and design ideas brought everything together to make Rest Well a success. 

Thinking Ahead

In the future, Rest Well should consider adding a a review section, so current buyers can share their love for the product. This can help promote sales for new buyers that are uncertain about whether or not they should make a purchase.
