Marconi P3 update

This project is really challenging due to all of the components. I am moving forward to apply these in context to the wearables, calling card, and cd. I have started the webpage, I just used wix to create an actual template. Here is a link to that page:  http://shoutout.wix.com/so/4Kowxnnh#/main

My keywords for Marconi are genius, perseverance, masculinity, and confidence. The whole idea is to feel futuristic (alluding to his progressive thinking) and stay sort of classic at the same time. The letter mark is a personification of sorts in which the "G" forms the head of the rigid shoulders of the "M", (serious). The pictogram is a silhouette of Marconi. The logo type refers to the SOS code that Marconi first transmitted from England to Newfoundland without wires at just 27 years old. He actually initially just sent the "S" which is three dots. The alternative logo is some radio / sound lengths forming an M. They also represent the invisible line of communication that he created between thousands of miles. The more I apply these in context the more changes I make. 

Here is a mockup CD I made that is titled "Are you ready."

On 13 May 1897, Marconi sent the world's first ever wireless communication over open sea. The experiment, based in Wales, witnessed a message transversed over the Bristol Channel from Flat Holm Island to Lavernock Point in Penarth, a distance of 6 kilometres (3.7 mi). The message read "Are you ready".

And last but not least I have the business card, which I used the sound waves forming the "M". The aesthetic is minimal to relate to his inventiveness. These are mint green colored. I'm going to try a few more renditions with the sos signals and the letter mark. The lines here represent the invisible lines of communication he created across thousands of miles, connecting people in a way like never before.
