Punchcard Phone

A Steampunk inspired user-centered mobile phone concept. To use the phone, a paper punchcard with binary encoded information must be inserted. The concept reflects the users’ frustration with bloated interfaces, and the desire to be more in touch with the hardware.

The brief was to create the ultimate iPhone killer mobile device, instead we turned the brief on its head and and made an exciting product with a strong message. Winner of ‘Most Mutated Design’ in a competition sponsored by O2 communications.
