“Target is known for creating exclusive (private) brands that are stylish, inspirational and affordable. When we looked at the current options our guests had in electronics, we saw an opportunity to apply some of that magic, taking tech from purely functional to fashionable and fun,” says Mark Tritton, executive vice president and chief merchandising officer, Target. “With the introduction of Heyday—our first internally designed and developed brand in electronics—we’re giving guests another reason to choose Target, with quality, value and style they won’t find anywhere else.”

Target has been spending a ton of time getting to know their younger customers —and designing new private brands for them. No surprise—tech’s a huge part of their lives. But it’s not just a way to connect with friends and family or listen to music, it’s a direct expression of who they are. So the Target in-house product design and development team got to work, understanding how tech powers their everyday lives, watching the latest trends in fashion, beauty, pop culture and more, and ultimately designing an entire line of stylish, reliable accessories that users can be proud to rock every day—and mix and match to show off their personal style. Plus, Target designers added special touches to take tech to the next level.
