I have an extensive cassette tape collection (Chicago house music) so naturally I was stoked to see that Designboom featured the awesome typography of Turkish designer Ersinhan Ersin. Ersin made all the letters and designs from deconstructed cassette tapes, and aptly calls it Tapeography. More pics on Ersin’s Behance Network page. Here’s hoping no good mixes were harmed in the making of his creation.

Goli Mohammadi

I’m a word nerd who loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon. I was an editor on the first 40 volumes of MAKE, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. In particular, covering art is my passion — after all, art is the first thing most of us ever made. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for untouched powder fields and ideal alpine lakes.

    Hi BW,
    Unfortunately not, but start taking those cassettes apart and playing! If you come up with something, let us know.
