The sound of AFib

OMRON - AFib awareness campaign

Listen to
your heart

Faced with the silent progression of AFib, OMRON recognized the need for increased public awareness and understanding. The challenge was to communicate the importance of early detection and consistent monitoring in a way that resonated with a broad audience.

OMRON's request was simple yet profound: create a campaign that could turn the intangible aspects of AFib into something tangible and engaging, leveraging their state-of-the-art monitoring technology as a preventive measure.

A strategy in harmony: bringing a heartbeat to life

Our strategic approach was anchored in the belief that music could serve as a powerful bridge between complex medical information and the public's understanding. By meticulously crafting a melody from the heartbeats of an AFib patient, we sought to create an immersive experience that not only raised awareness but also stimulated a deeper emotional and intellectual engagement with the topic of heart health. This strategy was underpinned by the dual goals of educating the audience about AFib and its implications, and positioning OMRON as a pioneer in innovative health monitoring solutions.

Tune into the sound of AFib

The creative spark for this campaign was ignited by the idea of turning the silent warning signs of AFib into a language that everyone could understand: music. This innovative concept envisioned taking the irregular heart rhythms characteristic of AFib and translating them into a musical composition, thus giving a voice to a condition that often goes unnoticed until it's too late. This approach was designed to captivate the audience's attention and foster a memorable connection with the cause.

Turning the symphony a heart into a reality

In the heart of the campaign, we spotlighted Marie, a real patient from the United States whose experience embodies the silent threat of AFib. Marie's journey began in the shadows of ignorance, suffering from AFib's repercussions simply because she was unaware of its presence. Her narrative was the cornerstone of our creation process, offering a deeply personal look into the consequences of undiagnosed AFib. 

By transforming Marie's heart rhythm into a unique musical composition, we not only showcased the innovative capabilities of OMRON's monitoring technology but also humanised the condition. Her story, interwoven with expert insights and the transformative power of music, became a poignant reminder of the importance of awareness and early detection. Through this creative execution, we aimed to enlighten, inspire, and compel action towards better heart health management.
