This can also be handled by a son, daughter or friend remotely from their own computer.
A new innovative and user-focused design
The modern, user-oriented and attractive design of the new telephones is the outcome of the collaboration with the agency WMP. The main foundation for this was numerous surveys, discussions and observations with representatives of the target group to pinpoint the design approach and the ideas. Here, the focus remained on creating telephones that are easy and intuitive to use without being patronising. The soft, curved forms provide comfort and security in the hand and make it easy to open and close the devices. Furthermore, the buttons are very clear to see and are arranged so they are distinct from one another, meaning users can be sure they will hit the right one.
The shape, size and position of specific features such as assistance button or camera lens and the Doro logo are consistent throughout the full product range. With these devices, user-friendliness is combined with an appealing and attractive look and feel.
Hugo Martin, Director of Product Design at WMP, comments: “This was a dream project for our team. We were working with a great customer and were intensely involved throughout the entire project, from design research through to the identification of previously unrecognised needs among the target group and on to the successful realisation of all the telephones in the product range.”
