The past couple of months working with my team for Forto Coffee have been fun. I have enjoyed learning about the brand and trying the samples of the Forto Coffee shots our client sent us. My team has been very enthusiastic and on top of all of our checkpoints. I am lucky to have worked with a motivated group of women for such a fun company. Learning about AR and how a coffee company can utilize it in the retail space was very interesting. I never knew how impactful an AR application could be for a sales pitch at a retail store. My team has remained positive, even with the recent COVID-19 issues. I am grateful for my team and the progress we have made for Forto Coffee.

Ashley Carter is a senior studying journalism and sociology. In the beginning stages of the project, Ashley said she wanted to help bring this big and bright idea to life. From a vision to reality. By bringing her education background to the project, she was able to contribute a lot of her efforts through her writing. Ashley spearheaded the first ever PR and FAQ write up for the app. She treated it as if the app was already done. She helped conceptualize its functions through the PR/FAQ which even helped her in another project as she wrote up the step by step guide of using the app. She made it so everything was clear and concise. This future of sales at Forto is here, and Ashley is so thankful to have been along for the journey of making it happen.

I had an amazing experience working with Forto Coffee in creating an AR app for its store distributors. I was able to work closely with the co-lead of tech within the group in order to create the renders used within the app. The overall experience went pretty smoothly in that our client as well as our group members did well with communicating with each other in terms of expectations and deadlines. I was able to use my animation experience in order to render images within our beta as well as learn about software like Xcode. I am grateful to have worked with a productive group as well as a company and enjoyed learning the different aspects on the tech side in order to bring this AR experience to life.

Working with Forto Coffee has been a blast. It has been a great experience bringing new technologies into an industry where it isn’t common to have these capabilities. Our team has done a great job at creatively finding solutions for our project, and we are excited to share our final product!

Working with Forto Coffee has been one of the most unique experiences I've ever been apart of. It has been a fun challenge to create an augmented reality app for an industry that doesn't typically use this technology. I was able to use my iOS development experience to build the app and my web design skills in order to design and build this site. I've been blessed to work with a team of badass women throughout the project and I'm thrilled to share the final product.
