In honor of Les Paul‘s birthday, Google has once again re-presented its iconic logo in a new form. This time, the guitar image plays on the user’s command to create an interactive experience.
To commemorate the reason for the design, I tried out my guitar skills. They don’t rival Paul’s, but here’s a sample:
The design of an experience like this one invites the user to play, to learn, and to be engaged – in this case, with a company’s logo. Such design asks the question, was this logo designed for Les Paul, or was it designed for me, the user?
Either way, it’s compelling design.
