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

tmg-slideshow_xl

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.
