While many know Les Paul for his signature Gibson guitar, he ended up creating much more. He was an inventor with a constant desire to change the way we play and record music. This infographic focuses on the inventions of Les Paul and how those inventions affect all of us and the music we listen to every day.
For this project, I picked the color scheme of predominantly black with gold and white typography to reflect the look of a Les Paul guitar's headstock. I also chose to create outlined 3D models to replicate the US Patent documents that were submitted for the inventions. These documents mainly consist of sketch line drawings and labels which were a huge inspiration for the aesthetic of this piece.
Being a Les Paul enthusiast myself, my professor insisted that I record the background music myself. The track in the background is written and recorded by me on my Gibson Les Paul Standard and mixed in Garageband.
