Aesthetic Aid

Hearing aids adopt aesthetic and tech upgrades

Implications - There’s often a stigma associated with disability aids as most consumers don’t want to stick out from the crowds. Modern aids, like hearing devices, are responding with not only more functional adaptations but also more aesthetically minimalist solutions. Whether it be crafting designs reminiscent of jewelry or simply adding elements of connectivity, these examples are speaking to the desire for aids that are not only more aesthetically pleasing, but aids that can better adapt and integrate into consumer rituals and lifestyle habits.
Workshop Question — What challenge is your product or service providing a solution to? How could you enhance that solution with modern aesthetics?
