    Neil Stevens: Don’t Forget The Cassette (detail)

Graphic Design: Neil Stevens pays homage to cassette graphics in his prints

Posted by Rob Alderson,

Nostalgia for the musical formats of decades past is a preternaturally powerful force, as we’re all well aware. Tapping into our lust for this kind of thing, Neil Stevens’ series of prints Don’t Forget The Cassette celebrates the aesthetics of the age of the mixtape, turning their bold colours and simple typography into really nice prints. Looking at them, it’s startling how quickly you are pulled back to your teenage bedroom, hunched over your stereo as you try and stop the tape at just the right moment to cut off the DJ’s voice. Simple, beautiful and memory-rich – we’ll take the whole lot Neil.
