My friend Zixin (fresh English graduate and music enthusiast) has recently started writing for Other Sounds, “an online entertainment publication dedicated to providing Singaporeans with the latest in music through the high quality, editorial output of local and international music news.” She pitched a column entitled The Other Sounds, a monthly mixtape which I anticipate will be filled with a bunch of songs and artistes that I had no idea existed.
Zixin asked me to do a really quick logo for the column, so I just went with the cliched ‘text formed by tape from the cassette’ visual. It was a surprisingly easy job; I just had to figure out the right ‘brush’ to use in Illustrator, and I actually managed to do trace the cassette and write the text using just my touchpad. It did take a heck of a lot of tries to get the readability of the title (and a lot of sending screenshots to Zixin) but I’m happy with how it turned out!
P.S. Check out November’s mixtape here!
