Lovely set of old VHS box graphics. I grew up with this stuff, and never really paid attention to it then, but looking at it now makes me appreciate the designs much more.

    Concur exactly. Never would have given these much thought in terms of design but it is actually good! Brings back memories. I wonder if I still have some old covers somewhere…

    how far back does it go?

    VHS boxes and audio cassette inlay cards were amongst my first real inspiration sources, two of the things that got me interested in graphic design when I grew up in the 80s. Surprisingly many of these old cassettes can be seen on the web!

  • i scanned in a load of my old VHS tape covers. Posterous is shutting down, but until then I have them here: http://colinelliot.posterous.com/vhs-cassette-boxes

  • These are so “vintage” looking that this sort of style of thing is back in fashion again. Flat colours on flat backgrounds.

    They’re lovely. I remember some of the old tape boxes being particularly bad. I think Memorex and TDK were really terrible!
