Remember those weekend walks to the music store? Mix-tapes were all the rage and you wanted a tape-to-tape recording. There were a lot of different blank cassette tapes to choose from. Seems like ages ago, doesn’t it?
“Tapedeck.org is a project of neckcns.com, built to showcase the amazing beauty and (sometimes) weirdness found in the designs of the common audio tape cassette. There’s an amazing range of designs, starting from the early 60’s functional cassette designs, moving through the colourful playfulness of the 70’s audio tapes to amazing shape variations during the 80’s and 90’s.”

The people at ‘No Name No Slogan’ have conducted an ‘in-depth’ study, testing the audio cassette against the iPod. The results are quite interesting.
