Pantone Smoothies, A Color Study That Matches Drinks To PMS Swatches


There’s a print project coming up, and you need to match a color to your smoothie… we’ve all been there. Thankfully, art director Hedvig A Kushner created this fun project, in which he matches fruit and vegetable mixtures to a PMS color swatch.

The project, Pantone Smoothies, is not only a fun color study — but Hedvig was also nice enough to layout the ingredients, along with an easy-to-follow recipe for each. Check out more below and over at Pantone Smoothies.

Face-Shaped Coffee Lids Aren’t Creepy At All


Take sips of coffee while getting a morning kiss. Korean designer, Jang Woo-Seok, has designed a disposable coffee cup lid with, not only the requisite sip-hole, but a nose and mouth.

No mention if the lids will actually be available for purchase. You can still kiss your coffee though. It’s OK… You’re amongst friends.

A Romantic Man Sent His Girlfriend A Dozen Flours


Welsh gentleman and romantic, Richard Selway, took full advantage of a good sense of humor and homophones, sending his girlfriend a dozen flours.

Figuring the delivery was a joke, Paige-Ellen Williams almost sent the Tesco delivery man away, before confirming the romantic gesture with her boyfriend via text.

Hopefully, just for being a first-class wiseass, Richard got at least some pie out of the deal.

The McWhopper, A Proposed Merger of The Whopper and Big Mac To Encourage Fast Food Peace


Burger King and McDonald’s have been at it for decades, battling for fast food supremacy. Now, with Peace One Day approaching, Burger King wants to call a truce, by merging each franchise’s signature burger.

The McWhopper would not only combine a Big Mac and Whopper into one sandwich, but would create a hybrid pop-up restaurant and branded employee uniforms.

Burger King is putting on a full-court press to get McDonald’s on board — launching a website, full page ads, and YouTube videos to promote the peace offering.

Please make the right move, McDonald’s. The fate of worldwide fast food peace hangs in the balance.

Update: McDonald’s has already decided not to give peace a chance, recently squelching the idea. You can read their PR-friendly response on Facebook.
