Jet.com and the Fresh landscape? Check it out!

Did you know you can shop for groceries online? What was incredible to witness during our internship was how fast paced and competitive the fresh grocery business is. Walmart and Jet are in a colliding rivalry with Amazon and Whole Foods. It’s an exhilarating and unique time to be a designer in this space because we are rethinking how groceries can be brought to different types of demographics through innovative and appropriate digital/physical solutions.

What’s it like to work purple?

Jet’s environment was very focused on providing different spaces for different modes of work. From collaborative couches to meditation rooms, anyone can find a workspace that’s ideal for them.
