A new swipe-card payment system from four UK mobile phone operators has been branded by Hertfordshire design consultancy Darwell Holland. One2One, Vodafone, Orange and BT Cellnet have joined forces to create a ‘top-up card’ which provides instant credit to mobile phones through machines located in major retailers, pubs, clubs, fast-food outlets and cinemas.
