From my previous post I have taken forward a similar style to the Philips portable turntable. I etched the level indicators onto black acrylic using the laser cutter. I then filled the etched slots with a mixture of filler and white paint. Any excess was wiped off and the acrylic was buffed down to a matt finish. I used the same approach for my button insert. I’m undecided on using the phrase ‘START’ on the button however. I wanted to convey that each time the object is used it will play a completely unique playlist thus starting something new every time. I felt it would make each playlist a new and exciting journey.
I think I need to make other variations using Play and Pause in text and symbolic format so see how they tie in.
