The main color of your phone can have an effect on your mood.
John’s phone is designed in special colors. The color of a phone can really make or break a great design.
About colors; a color can influence our mood and our thoughts. Colors affect people in many ways, depending upon one’s age, gender, ethnic background or local climate. So it’s important to choose wisely.
We always wondered why all phones look so serious; all those black/ grey small boxes we carry around every day just look so dull. Why?
Why not a bright pink phone? Or a superloud raspberry-and-yellow checked phone?
Unique colors, like brown, pink and green, can get your phone noticed.
A phone‘s color reflects the taste and mood of the buyer.

Note: Whatever color you choose make sure it’s in the color you enjoy.

Hein in China (Guangzhou) with the first working proto type in 2006.
Test models from 2007.
Late 2006 design sample.
We got many Chinese friends. In 2006 and 2007 Hein traveled the most to China to do production checking, raw materials confirmation, etc. The best way to work in China is to be there. By visiting you definitely learn who not to do business with. So we traveled a lot to China and visited many factories in China. We got a huge mix, good and bad manufactories. The best factories are the one with Government contacts, they are highly influential and using the Chinese Government system to assist you as a buyer will “guarantee” better products, delivery and financial transactions.

John Doe Amsterdam designed and created a mobile phone called John’s.
The name comes from it’s father John Doe.
We created the phone to be as simple as possible but with a beautiful and stylish design. John’s is designed to work for 3 weeks with one single charge and can work with any SIM card in the world.
John Doe believes in simplicity and basics. That’s the reason we started to create this phone. In a time of waste and luxury it would be good to re-invent and re-design the cell phone.
We wondered why there was no simple but beautiful looking phone for sale. There are some simple phones special made for elderly. These phones only have huge buttons that is it. We saw an opportunity to design our own simple phone with a great design. Attractive design also for other target groups. Eldery are not the only persons who don’t want the all singing, all dancing ‘smart phones’. There is a number of people who want simplicity. Just a phone for calling.
Simplicity it the key, from this point we started designing the phone. We wanted to make the most simple phone ever, easy to use in every way. This means not only easy buttons and a clear screen but also a very strong battery. A battery for one month, this makes it very comfortable to have this phone with you while travelling or just have it with you for unexepcted moments for calling. An other feature to make the phone simple: the phone should work worldwide. Where ever you are or go this phone makes is all easier for you.
Besides all these important aspects of the phone technically, the phone should look totally different from any other phone. We wanted to make a goodlooking phone. Most designs of phones are very boring. Why?
Why not make a design that fits your mood and makes you happy.

Above: Two of John Doe Amsterdam’s commercials. Both broadcasted in 82 countries.
You have undoubtedly seen John Doe’s work before, possibly without knowing it. You may have heard or read about John Doe in the media, but since we are John Doe – ‘The unidentified’ – you would in all likelihood not have known exactly who we are. This identity suits John Doe, because we feel it’s all about the work, not about the people behind the work. Nonetheless, all the Johns would very much like to get to meet you. Being a creative agency, John Doe has manifested itself as an all-rounder. With a mind of its own, John Doe is a full-service advertising agency based in a historic shipyard in Amsterdam. With a panoramic view of old steamships and shipbuilding gear to inspire, all the Johns gained the freedom to come up with fresh campaigns for our current clients: Lada, MTV Networks, MTV UK, MTV Canada, the City of Rotterdam, Bacardi Limón, Bacardi Razz and Cóco, Bacardi Bright, Nieuwe Revu, Martini, Coca-Cola, Tetra Pak, JOHAN football magazine, Mine and KPN. John Doe Amsterdam was founded by Hein Mevissen, Diederiekje Bok and Sam Stewart. Visit John Doe Amsterdam at www.johndoeamsterdam.com
