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.

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.

John’s Phone is here.

A detail
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.

Designing John’s.

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.
