    There’s an interesting juxtaposition between the letter shapes of the SONY logo, the Eurostile Extended (or Microgramma) used for the main “60” mention, and the Univers used throughout the rest of the layout.

    The design layout is a visual allegory of the cassette’s tape reels, and uses a bold red/black/white palette.
