These Redesigned Fast Food Logos Get Real


McDonald’s, KFC, and Wendy’s are such an easy target for satire, that taking liberties with their branding and logos has become commonplace.

Georgia-based designer, Ashley Comer, wants in on the fun, and has created Slow Food — a not-so-subtle rethinking of a few fast food chains’ branding.

The result… A reminder that fast food gets you fat, is evil, and that you shouldn’t eat it. You know, commonplace. Check out more below and over at Behance.

KFC Created A Tray Keyboard So You Won’t Have To Touch Your Phone With Greasy Fingers


We’ve all been there… You need to send a very important text or email, and your fingers are covered in chicken grease. KFC knows that the struggle is real, and has created the Tray Typer — a disposable keyboard to use while you finish off your chicken bucket.

Available at a few locations of KFC Germany, the Bluetooth-enabled keyboard fits right into your tray, and will sync to your phone.

No longer will those important texts, tweets or emails go unsent, just because your hands are compromised. You know the ones… “At KFC, hanging with the Colonel, LOL!!” or “🍗🍗🍗🍗, LMAO!!

Fast Food and Junk Food Photographed As Renaissance Paintings


It takes quite a bit to make fast food aesthetically-pleasing. Luckily, there was a little something called the Renaissance, which could help make anything from creepy man-babies to sub-par cheeseburgers look good.

Photographer Rebecca Rütten has taken advantage of the art movement, and has prettied-up some fast food with Contemporary Pieces. The photography series, inspired by the look of Renaissance paintings, poses a few still-lifes and cloaked subjects holding fast food.

Thankfully, there’s no man-babies eating McNuggets.

This French Fries Bed Will Help Supersize Your Naps


Would you like fries with that nap? Supersize Bed is a project by British set and costume designer, Cecilia Carey, in collaboration with architectural foodsmith, Harry Parr.

The fully-functional bed has the requisite mattress, with the added bonus of a giant package of fast-food fries as a headboard. Did we mention that the fries are giant pillows that can be removed and used to make sleeping even awesomer? They may even help you dream of fast food… more so.




What If Fast Food Restaurants Had To Make The Food Look Like It Does In Their Ads?


It’s no secret that the ads put forth by fast food companies, don’t accurately represent the food that the customer receives. So, what if the fast food eater fought back, and wanted the more edible-looking version of their food item?

Fast Food Ads vs. Reality Experiment is brought to us by Greg Benson of Mediocre Films. Greg, armed with a hidden camera, confronts the fast food workers that are just doing their jobs — asking if they could modify the food to look more like the misleading photo.

The best part… The fast food workers, for the most part, are very courteous and accept the challenge. And, with that little bit of motivation, they get the food pretty darn close to the one in the picture. Please enjoy.
