Design brief

Organization name

HearPlugs

Description of business

We're Australian based developers of an innovative earplug product called HearPlugs.

We love going to live music events, seeing bands and going to festivals. At many live music events, noise levels can reach in excess of 100 decibels. Exposure to music above 94 decibels for as little as an hour can start causing hearing damage. Many people wake up the morning after a music event with a buzzing or ringing sensation in their ears. This is the sound of Tinnitus, the onset of hearing loss. Over time, and with repeated exposure to loud noise, this ringing often gets worse, increasing to a deafening roar. Hearing damage is a big problem in Australia which is expected to increase significantly over the next several years. In the UK, leading record artists such as Coldplay's Chris Marin and Plan B have recently come out in support of concert goers wearing earplugs to protect their hearing.

HearPlugs were developed to help protect people's hearing from damage, while still allowing them to enjoy the full range of sound in live music. We achieve this through a unique type of filtered earplug that we've spent several years testing and itteriating to bring it to its current state. Unlike regular foam earplugs which both reduce noise and muffle music, HearPlugs reduce absorption of loud noise to levels to within a safer range, while still maintaining the clarity of the music.

Target Audience
Music lovers aged 18-39. They enjoy attending live music events or festivals. They may also work in the music industry where they are regularly exposed to excessive volume.

Further requirements

The logo will be used:
- As a header on the website.
- In packaging. The logo will be used in single colour, laser etched on to a small aluminium tube cary case.

Please consider using the colour Tangerine within the design. This will be the colour of the string that connects the two earplugs.

A thought starter could be using an illustration of a filtered earplug image such as attached.

The files we will require are:
Print file format - .ai (CMYK) and mono colour
Web file format - .jpg and layered .psd (RGB)

Thanks for your help in bringing our brand to life, we look forward to seeing what you come up with!
