democratizing connectivity

How might we provide internet access to people from emerging countries?

Vodafone asked us to develop a format to deliver innovation within their 'Terminals' division. We helped devise & install DIL - the design & innovation lab. The first challenge provided to DIL led to the development of the web box.

Q!
Re-thinking mankind's oldest tools

Kitchen tools are literally an ancient and crowded product category. The challenges Fissler presented us with were, how might we:


1) innovate to create new consumer relevance?
2) define a kitchen tool portfolio that is both complete and meaningful for any regional market?
3) design 40-plus individual kitchen tools so that they embody the Fissler brand in the highest price point of the premium segment?

Smart 3
building a hardware brand

For their 2013 portfolio, Vodafone asked studiomem to help evolve and diversify their smartphone lineup, initially introduced in 2012 with "Pebble". With Alma 575, we achieved an attractive, friendly geometry, sporting the characteristic Vodafone "chin" with an assymetric status LED in the bottom and red-inside speaker mesh on the back cover.

Fixed Line Design Language
At Home in your Home

How might we design a range of connectivity products that - finally! - people are confident to display in their home?

 

Vodafone asked us to develop a contemporary Industrial Design Language for smart devices in a connected home (e.g. routers, camera, set-top box, music devices, etc.). 

 

THE RESULT

 

We created a language that is charismatic, minimalistic and contemporary and can easily be distinguished from competitors. It is simple, yet ownable - and therefore unmistakably Vodafone.
