Celebrating the 007 Skyfall movie, Coca-Cola in collaboration with Skyfall wanted to give out free tickets, but their definition of free isn’t what we’d come to expect. Instead of getting totally free tickets people had to work for it, when someone ...

Well, thats what photographer Fulvio Bonavia thought of when he created this new collection for his latest book, A Matter of Taste.

I do not know what to make of this very short animation other than how amazing it looks and how I cannot comprehend the meaning. The animation titled “Happy Food” was created by Yum Yum London who mainly create weird and funky toys which of course inspired this animation characters.

I have been a big fan of Tim Burton movies till I realized the art style is being milked over and over again. Here is the work of someone who has taken cues from Burton’s movies and turned them into a mind bending cake, called Zoetrope. The cake was created by Alexandre Dubosc and this cake may look good, but I can assure you it is more than what meets the eye. The cake when rotated, animates! ...

Razorfish studied the market and came up with a plan to boost the sales of McDonald’s in Germany by simply involving people. So they created a crowd-sourced burger, meaning people get to customize their burgers from bun to patty however they want. It is ...

Having a consistent shape is an open canvas and equal space for every designer and here is a project inspired by iOS icons created just for the fun of it by Julian Burford. He has created eight food products as app icons and it ...

Skittles has been such a fantasy of childhood, all those colors and sweet taste all from a single little bag. Skittles is still here and it is advertising the same product yet again; however, by hiring Canadian-based advertising agency BBDO, they have approached it in a fresh new way. Their slogan is “Taste the Rainbow” and by this these videos were spread only on the internet as they required the viewer to place one finger on a ...

This is just a clever idea, I never imagined wanting to eat Pantones, well the edible ones of course as Artist and Art Director Emilie Guelpa has managed to make them so.

There are those who capture a moment in time and others who create a moment and shoot it, both are great but it is more personal when staged. Philip Karlberg is one talented photographer, his newest set of images is called 33RPM and they just look great! He carefully placed and centered delicious desserts right on the center of a vinyl, had them spin and snapped photos. The spinning was ridiculously slow, he either modified it ...
