BAT Vending Machine & Card Reader Casing:

This vending was designed for BAT (British American Tobacco) and was a fully monitored electronic vending machine with a custom designed debit card reader.

The design was mainly focussed around the user’s interaction with the machine and how it could be felt more intuitively without the need for prior operating experience. Enhanced electronic systems allowed maintenance checkups to be done remotely and restocking could be automated through online diagnostics tools.

After the foundation of the design was finalized an exterior wrapping was created to enhance aesthetics and allowed for easier interchangeability of branding.

This Vending Machine was designed in collaboration with Vinallti Ltd. while working as a Freelance Industrial Designer in South Africa in 2007.
