Final Microphone Timeline

My final microphone timeline consists of a visualized sound wave with each ring hosting an important date in the microphone's history. The background is copper which was the original material used for the coils inside of the microphone. I wanted this to be as colorful as sound, and to have the metallic qualities of the microphone. There are linear elements within the circle to represent the transition to the digital era and the way sound waves appear on the screen. I really challenged myself to stick to a concept rather than trashing the first one that didn't work and I'm happy with the results. I feel that I'm refining my design process into a more efficient way to work.
