John's Phone

Water From The Supermarket
We designed, developed and launched a complete new water brand into the market in 2005. From the supermarket is based on the lack of knowledge most consumers have of the products they buy in the supermarket. They know things are from the supermarket, but not much more. from the supermarket tells it like it is: contrary to its competitors, from the supermarket doesn’t make promises it can’t keep. That’s why the pay-off simply says: Buy it and it’s yours!

Toni Electroni
In 2006 John Doe launched the first vehicle From The Supermarket, the Toni Electroni. It is a scooter that makes a whole lot of sense. It is not a source of urban pollution, in terms of both emissions and noise. The Toni Electroni is green, clean and safe. Above all this great design makes you want to have it and drive it all day long.

John Doe is always looking for new daring different areas of excitement that will result in increased revenue. Animation is one of their favorite ways to to express the individuality and amplify uniqueness of a brand. Bok and Mevissen are fond of animation and storytelling. However, they are great storytellers themselves and animation can push brands , with universal stories and striking visuals designed to captivate and engage any audience. Bok and Mevissen made many animation commercials for their own brands and for other brands.

John Doe came up with a new concept for Dutch insurance company de Amersfoortse and presented this to our client. We created and designed a crowd funding website so entrepreneurs can get their new ideas funded on this website and the Amersfoortse. The strategy behind it is to show this company understands what it is to be an entrepreneur and to stop talking about helping or advising entrepreneurs. John Doe created this project and build the whole website. (John Doe is not responsible for how this site and campaign is managed and ran now)
