Most phones come with flimsy manuals with complicated language and jargon. These books, which can live on a bookshelf actually contain the phone.
Each page reveals the elements of the phone in the right order, helping the user to set up the sim card, the battery and even slide the case onto the phone.

The second book is the main manual – the phone actually slots into this and becomes the center of attention.
Arrows point to the exact locations the user should press, avoiding confusion and eliminating the feeling of being lost in a menu.

BIG ISSUU

ISSUU allows you to turn all sorts of digital content in to a digital publication. It does have the obligatory page turn/curl feature, but apart from that it looks gorgeous. It must be useful for something….

It’s a clock. But humanised.

In a world obsessed by accuracy, human beings are the weakest link. We’ve invented machines that are more precise than we can relate to.

It’s a Clock humanises the measurement of time to provide us with a scale more suited to the realities of life.
