A couple of posts ago, I wrote about the new Filipino brand of headphones Timbre (pronounced as tam-ber). I am so glad to finally get to reveal to you the first design of the Timbre headphones that is all about Filipino pride and support for our own music – Gitara.
The whole design concept behind the Gitara headphone is a collaboration between Timbre and one of the top and most popular design studios in the Philippines, Team Manila.
We got to interview Paul, the guy behind Timbre, and he gladly shared with us how he came up with the concept of Timbre. He believed it was about time for a Pinoy to come out with our own brand of headphones to promote, not only Pinoy pride, but support of local music or OPM.
Timbre is a design-driven brand of headphones, thus the use of the byline “The Color of Music”. This concept is based on the idea that there’s a synesthete in all of us and with the use of graphics design, they want us to visualize what shapes, colors and compositions will represent a certain genre of music.
