Project Overview

Nikola Tesla was one of the greatest inventors in history. If we can now enjoy the wonders of electrical technology, it is largely due to his inventions and ideas. For me, Nikola Tesla has always been an exciting figure, a misunderstood genius who is being recovered from oblivion in recent years. Some years ago I designed and programmed an iPad application about the life of Nikola Tesla. Unfortunately, the costs of maintaining and adapting that application to successive versions of iOS meant that I had to abandon the project. However, I wondered how I could show Nikola Tesla's life and inventions in an original way, without having to resort to complicated projects. A few months ago I came up with the solution: an infographic poster.

The final result is this poster that covers the main moments in the life of the brilliant Nikola Tesla, as well as his most outstanding and amazing inventions.

But I didn't want it to be a simple poster, so I've added an interactive element: sound. Through a small QR code printed on the poster (it can be used with any current mobile phone or similar), you can access eight sound files (MP3, total audio duration of about half an hour) in which have been reproduced, as a recreation of the voice of Nikola Tesla along with environmental sounds, several passages of his 1919 work entitled "My Inventions". Here is an example of one of those audios.

My goal was to create not only a visually appealing poster but also to add a special atmosphere to it through the audio files, trying to recover some of the passion Tesla showed when describing his inventions.

I want to thank José Juan Saga for his invaluable help in creating that audio files.

This project has received a rating of 9.4 by Profta.

Risks and challenges

The poster design is completely finished and printing tests have been carried out to check the final quality of the paper. For the printed version this time I count on the help of a printing supplier that allows me to offer the poster both in printed version on high-quality paper as well as in downloadable digital version with minimal risk.
