As technology keeps evolving there exists a need to appreciate the wonders of a hand-made design approach. The availability of computer software has created generations who perceive design as mere computer skills and looks. This is my response to the potential of a more involved approach. Where the intended message directs the medium and the look of the design. The word served as guidance during the conceptual phase.

Helping communicate a word meaning ”signal wave stored as physical texture” by choosing a manual direction. The word is constructed using audio cassette tape. By utilizing a tangible material, the word acquired a randomness that enhanced the message. There are a range of design possibilities, where a non-digital approach can best serve the communication process. Instead of forcing digital effects into our work, a physical approach can make our intent more clear, uncluttered and universal.
