Songbird Hearing Rebrand

Creative Direction, Copywriting, Graphic Design, and Product Photography

Audience

Adults who have trouble hearing but don’t want to pay the full price of a traditional hearing aid.

Objective

Show how life’s little moments can be enhanced with the help of a Songbird audio amplifier.

Overview

As interim CMO and Creative Director, the specific objectives for this project were to cut through the stigma that people usually associate with hearing aids, while giving them an easy way to hear for themselves, how their lives could be enhanced with the help of a Songbird Ultra. I crafted the brand’s voice and image, then managed the development process.

The New and Improved Songbird

With a rich history of product innovation and customer service, Songbird had been around for a dozen-ish years already before the new owners stepped in. Now it was in need of an overhaul and repositioning. Starting with the logo, everything about the brand needed to be cleaner, more friendly, and easier to buy.

The Pitch

The job was to inspire. To show people that they can regain connections with the people they care most deeply about. Songbird enables conversations and empowers people to become a participant in the lives around them… again. This presentation set the tone for everything that came after.

The Website

The specific objectives for the website were to cut through the stigma that people usually associate with hearing aids while giving them an easy way to hear for themselves how their lives could be enhanced with the help of a Songbird. Big, bold, modular panels were designed to be modular and easy to read.

Product Photography

I photographed these clean, crisp images that were needed for each product and every accessory. No high end studio here... these were all shot in my kitchen.

Advertising

While some people may buy hearing aids so they can hear the TV better, they justify the purchase at a higher level. The “Hear here” campaign shows the appeal that amplified hearing gives in those precious moments shared with friends and family. Jim Erickson’s amazing stock photos were proposed.
