Retro Cassette Tape by michaelmknight Retro Cassette Tape by michaelmknight
I loved the 70/80's and I miss using the old cassette tapes, so I thought I'd make one for posterity, though this is not complete, I doubt I will ever finish it.

Download includes Massive versions as well as the regular sized docks and Win/Mac icons.

As always, please have the respect to comment or fav before you download, thanks.

very poorly done! could use some textures.. it looks so plain out of life and dull.. I have seen retro cassette tapes before this isn't retro enough for me :|

Tit for tat because I gave you critique on [link] - Maybe your icons would be good if you hadn't ripped the NOD32/ESET logo.

Thanks for the comment though.

no i really mean it learn to take criques positively. These cassttes are very poorly done. there is a difference between inspiration and ripping off.. i think i saw many icons of this format [link] but its considering as inspired from that. well if you think otherwise did you rip it too? :)
They used to use reels inside the earlier tapes, and I thought they were more pleasing to the eye. This rendering is pretty good, but it could use more details.

I'll post a tape of my own sometime, as I like these things, and am an avid cassette tape collector.

Thanks for your comment. I designed this very minimal for a reason. But again, thanks for taking the time to comment. Would love to see your design if a tape if you do one.
It's posted now.

cassette tapes rock :)
hmm with a little shading on the white part, and maybe some more deph all around it'd look better imo

I think it could use more texture and details.
