Halo Neuroscience

Design from the ground up

Halo Sport is a brain stimulator that helps you develop muscle memory faster

Halo Neuroscience is a start up whose first product is Halo Sport. Halo Sport is a brain stimulator that helps you develop muscle memory faster. It looks like a normal pair of headphones but within the headband is the brain stimulating technology. Halo Sport works by applying a small electric current to the area of the brain that controls movement, putting it into a state of hyper-learning.

As Design Director, I have built Halo's design function, and led the team's strategic efforts to meet the goals of the business across:

  • Software product design
  • Marketing support and our website
  • Brand development and photography style
     

Below is an overview of our work.

Style guide

Elements such as typography, color and photography are the building blocks for any brand. By developing a system and concise style guide for the Halo brand, we as the design team are able to create more complex pages and marketing materials more efficiently.

 

Brand development and photography style

Halo is performance company with a mission to champion human potential. I led the effort to establish a photography style that is consistent with that tone and message.
