hello and welcome!
My name is Angelina and I am the founder of impro studio. I have had two experiences of sudden hearing loss and am single sided deaf (SSD) since August '23. While trying to communicate to hearing people what it is like to live SSD with tinnitus, I found that the most effective way to explain my experience is to use a simple graphic. After lots of positive feedback, I have decided to publish my own series of graphics displaying a wider variety of hearing impairments. While these are representations ("the map is not the territory"), I hope they will facilitate conversations about hearing and how we make sense of our world.
Please enter your e-mail address and subscribe to our mailinglist. The download link will be sent to your inbox and you will be updated when more graphics are available.
There are now 60 of 130 images available. Each graphic is available in 5 different skin tones.
Currently available languages: English.
Thank you for using and sharing our hearing graphics. If you find them useful, please support this project by making a donation.
The money we receive will enable me to continue improving this set (e.g. translate it, add other variables), make more offers (graphics, events etc), as well as create an impro studio fund.
suggestions & feedback
We'd love to hear your feedback. How do these graphics help you communicate? How are you using them? And what would make them even better? Please complete our (anonymous) feedback form.
