Ashley Temudo re-designed the hearing aid. hearind aid 1 - high resAshley, who is a second year 3D Design student at Brighton, took his inspiration from the way spectacles have been transformed from assistive aids (who can forget the ugly NHS pink and blue glasses dolled out to children in the 1970s?) to the must-have fashion accessories many designs are today.
Ashley told me : “I aimed to recreate the way hearing aids look and how people perceive them. From a minimalist object that tends to be hidden today, almost considered a social stigma, I wanted to create a fashion accessory which could be worn flamboyantly, attracting positive attention, even from people with no hearing impairments.”
And there is nothing timid about this design. What do you think?
