Recently, we were all teased with the concept of sushi-inspired towels. Now, there’s Sushi Towels that are very real and ready to dry off your finest goods.

Brought to us by Japan Trend Shop, the three rolls are made to resemble norimaki (sushi roll with seaweed). The towels are even packaged in a bamboo case to help carry the sushi theme.

Artists Help Celebrate 100 Years of Coca-Cola In A Series of Minimalist Ads

mashup-coke

Believe it or not, Coca-Cola has been around for a century. To help celebrate the soft drink’s longevity and icon status, 130 artists created a series of ads — using nothing more than Coca-Cola’s brand colors, and its iconic bottle shape.

Officially-titled Mashup Coke, the series is an exercise in minimalist graphic design, the use of negative space, and iconography. It also goes to show you how powerful branding can be — even if that brand is nothing more than caramel-colored sugar water.

See more below and over at Instagram, #MashUpCoke.

Pizza Is The New Black, A Series of Monochromatic ‘Pizza’ With Unusual Toppings

3

What actually constitutes a pizza? It needs to be round, sometimes square, with a base preferably made of dough. Then it needs to have stuff on it.

With those criteria in mind, Pizza Is The New Black is a series of the most interesting pizza we’ve seen in a while. The monochromatic photos include a pizza representing one color — including the dough and background. The toppings, although mostly inedible, are only meant to blend into its color scheme.

The series is brought to us by design studio Black Pizza, chef Julie Basset and photographer Erwan Fichou. One yellow pizza with extra rubber ducky, please!
