A Family of remote hi-tech devices to help with impaired hearing
A process of workshops and iterations
The project was initiated with a series of workshops with the R&D team at Widex where together we defined the basis for the devices and their functionality. The industrial design on the devices was worked on in parallel with hardware internals with a focus on creating a design language across the devices to help communicate a strong brand presence. Many iterations were made across all devices as the project matured with regards to economy, components and features. The challenge through this journey was to preserve the original design intent for the design language through multiple product changes with spec and functions.
Hi-tech yet simple and friendly
Technophobia in older users is common and we focused in on creating a simple and friendly form with intuitive interfaces while at the same time acknowledging that the store dispensers buying into the product are more often than not technology driven and looking for a wide offering.
