John’s funky colors and components to spice up your call.

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.

John’s in China.

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’s opened an online shop.

John’s has also a small online shop now. Go see John’s Little online Shop. All John’s are ready for pre-order and will be shipped from october.

The online store is only in Dutch. We apologize for the inconvenience. John’s sales team is working hard to get the english version online.

The birth of the no-nonsense Phone.

In 2005 John Doe Amsterdam launched the brand From The Supermarket. From The Supermarket is a no-nonsense brand, it doesn’t pretend to be anything more: it’s a good and honest product packed in a stylish and contemporary design. The attractiveness of the products is based on their quality and fresh appearance.
The first of a range of products was Water From The Supermarket; it enjoyed national and international popularity.

Soon we extending with new products like T-shirt From The Supermarket, Juice From The Supermarket all had the same promise: back to the basics.

The From The Supermarket products got the ball rolling. We thought, you know what, let’s challenge ourselves. Let’s make the most basic phone ever.

We have many years of experience working for telecom companies. Our strengths, our skills, our experience and our unique perspective will see us through this challenge.

We’ve always wondered why most affordable phone looks so dull and boring.
All cell phones are great high-tech product we like to use every day. Why not spend more time in designing. It’s the things we don’t see that are the most essential to creating a great design. A great design is a present.Why not make yourself happy with a present everyday in your pocket.

When we started designing our phone he smart phone market grew impressive. Mobile phones are more than just convenient communication tools: They allow you to sync with the calendar on your PC, dial a number by the sound of your voice, look up breaking news on the Internet, take photos, play games, send text messages, listen to music, and more.

The first design did not have a display for energy reasons.

A sample of our design from 2005. Phone without display but with led lights.

But not everybody wants to be in contact all the time. And sifting through the sea of features and cool extra aspects can be difficult to just do what you want do with a phone: make phone calls.
Where is the phone you can just call with?

Finally here it is John’s phone.
John’s Phone is a no-nonsense mobile phone, it doesn’t pretend to be anything more: no bullshit, just a phone to make your call.

Fun times is just a phone call away.

Phone from the Supermarket can be touched!!!! We love it.
