In our opinion, there’s little room for argument that Card Phone features a fantastic minimalistic marketing approach and slick packaging design to invoke a minimalistic aesthetic. By challenging the status quo and helping us (at least temporarily) disconnect from our overconnected world, the company seems to signal a forthcoming change in perspective.
But, in light of today’s world, we have to ask:
- Are you ready to pay for a second phone—especially one that might only be used for a few hours per week?
- Is it wise to increase your overall expenses just to disconnect from technology?
- Despite its fantastic marketing approach, does Card Phone really just represent our culture’s obsession with buying more and believing that it will provide us with less?
Some of these are deeper questions than others, but the bottom line is that only you hold the answers.
