I am a Brazilian designer and I love to share ideas and
different points of view, and of course ... it's always fun to create.
And I said: Coffee and music are essential for a designer.
Hi, I'm Alyssa. I am a fresh grad of Graphic Design as of recent and I've decided to just join in the fun of the Cassette design challenge.
So for my Casette Design Challenge, I've decided to do a design inspired by one my most favorite songs from Muse - Supermassive Black Hole. I have used spiral lines being blended and masked in a minimalistic approach in order to represent the dark, futuristic and beautiful tunes of the song. Done in 15 mins. Fun challenge!
I'm Barbara Lambert a Web Design student. I'm a fan of Illustrator and Vectortuts+ is a great place to learn and challenge myself. My cassette is titled Maintain.
I’m David – web designer by day, vector busting ninja illustrator by night.
When I listen to music I tend to flit from genre to genre so this image represents my monster mega mix – enjoy!

Inspiration - I didn't see many cassettes with transparency illustration. I've added my version to the challenge.

My design is in part inspired by dub step music, and in part by the album artwork from Linkin Park's earlier albums. I love the shapes made by origami and it is interesting in a metallic-like form.
My name is Gabrielle and I am aspiring illustrator-hobbyist. I love Illustrator and am always finding ways to better my knowledge, even though it is not my main passion.
I was inspired to make a mix tape for kids because that genre of music seems to be left out nowadays. Young children end up listening to music that wouldn't have been allowed 20 years ago. Kids should have their own innocent music.
Irene Barrasa Ramos
Hi everybody!. I made this one based on space and the theme "Earthsong" by Michael Jackson
Hello, my name is Janina. I'm from Germany and a trainee for digital media design. My cassette is based on a Detail of a bass. I vectorize this all with illustrator
Keena Nicole Lawrence
My name is Keena and I am student at Full Sail University. This is my design for the Vectortuts+ Cassette Design Challenge. My design was inspired by the song "Papercut" by Linkin Park. It is a simple design, but I think it is a good visual representation of the sound/feeling given by this song.
Kenneth San Juan Tadena
Inspired by 80's British New Wave era, it's a simple design, easy to design and plain color but expresses the era it was derived from. This is New Wave.
Hi, my name is Luis I’m from Mexico and I want to be a graphic designer. I like abstract art and I thought it would look good behind my cassette.
Work inspired from the videotape of levels Avicii when the immagination start to run and you can't stop to move and create alternative world.

Although this Tuts+ Workshop is over, we're always starting new projects on a variety of themes. Why not check out:
We've started a new design challenge and it's a bit different from previous workshops. It's a freestyle challenge with a theme of "Information Graphic Maps". This means you are free to interpret the challenge in any way you wish, as long as it displays information in map form.
We publish a wide variety of tutorials and tips on Vectortuts+, but it's not often we get to see the other side of our tutorials. In our "Created by You" Tuts+ Workshop, we shine a spotlight on the fantastic work created by the students of Vectortuts+ and give you the opportunity to take part.
Vectortuts+ is all about helping people turbo charge their skills we have special community posts that will help our readers take their images to the next level. The best thing is, you can be part of it too! We accept submissions of artwork you wish to be posted to gain feedback from our readers.
