Continuing IA’s series on projects we’ve enjoyed, IA Senior Designer Katie Lazarine talks about favorite aspects of working on the Jamba Juice headquarters in Frisco, Texas.
The design for the headquarters was inspired by Jamba Juice’s bright and cherry whirl logo, based on the sound and action of a blender.
The 10-feet-high conference room doors, each painted a solid color in sequence with the Jamba rainbow, are Lazarine’s favorite design element. She also loves the breakroom/multipurpose room, which features a 20-foot-long custom island, fronted by faux fruit in acrylic cases that mimics the storage of real fruit in Jamba stores.
For this project, Lazarine learned that incorporating the EGD team at the beginning of the design process was important and impactful.
