Life sounds brilliant: An app for your personal sound experience.

Screens Signia App

Ergosign redesigns the "Signia" app with all target groups in focus.

The Sivantos hearing aid can be controlled by a smartphone app. We were tasked with redesigning and expanding the concept of the Signia app. The project enabled us to undertake the complete design process, from the expert review of the existing design and concept ideas, to testing the new app prototypes in A/B testing, to completely redesigning the app, including its icons and animations.

UX
Brief

Satisfying the target audience

Hearing aids are worn by people of all ages, young and old. The target group for our app is equally diverse. The design of our app was influenced by the needs of older users in many areas: intuitive controls with a high recognition factor, large buttons, only a few tabs for navigation, lots of whitespace. Our concept also reflects the needs of younger users: modern features, such as using the hearing aid to stream music.

Approach

The app with a personal touch

One important concept and design element is the personal aspect of the app. At the beginning, the device must be professionally adjusted by a hearing care professional. The user can contact them via the app, on chat or video, so it is quite easy to make fine adjustments to the aid with a specialist.

Outcome

Jede Menge Designelemente

So much has gone into our design: during the entire course of the project we created over 365 art boards, 158 different screens, 180 icons and almost 70 illustrations. We also arranged images and illustrations in two layers to make it easy to re-color them for Signia’s different design worlds. Discover the app: it is available for download from the App Store and Google Playstore.
