Cereal Critters, A Series That Imagines Cereal Mascots As Action Figures

phil_postma_cereal_critters_3

If you grew up –like most — hooked on the kiddie crack that is kids’ breakfast cereal, then you probably consider cereal mascots your breakfast heroes. Unfortunately, after all these years, Frankenberry and Quisp were never given the honor of being encapsulated in a blister bubble.

Artist Phil Postma wants to change all of that, by providing a visual of what a cereal mascot would look like if packaged as an action figure. Cereal Critters is a series of illustrations provided by Postma, with our favorite breakfast spokesmen nestled safe in their bubble packaging.

Which cereal mascot would you want to play with first? Or, would you immediately want to form some sort of justice league with all of the cereal monsters?

vegan_v2Whether your dietary restrictions are due to legitimate health issues, or are voluntary choices made so that you’ll have something to talk about at parties — the reasons can often be quite hilarious. Except if it’s to avoid diarrhea… that’s serious.

Michelle Rial of the Bold Italic thinks so, and has created Dietary Restrictions to help break down a few diets that are all the rage.

And, if you’re not sure which diet you should try… the answer is always hummus. gluten_v2 dietary_1200_v4 disclaimer[link, via designtaxi]

Homer Simpson Wine

Although, wine might be a little too high-brow for Homer Simpson, designers Constantin Bolimond and Dmitry Patsukevich brings us a Simpsons-inspired wine.

Claiming to have been created 25 years ago “as an experiment to make people speculate as to what’s actually in the wine bottle,” the design is inspired by the minimalist style of Mondrian.

Whether there’s an actual wine in the bottle is up for debate… although we think the bottle copy is a cryptic message that simply refers to the television series itself. All design and no wine makes Homer something, something.

These days, job hunting sucks. That is, unless you’re a hiring manger, where you’ll receive plenty of free beer, cookies, and candy.

Designer Matthew Hirsch is one of the latest job-seekers to get creative with their resume. Taking full advantage of his last name and his design skills, he created the Hirschy’s Bar resume — a play on an actual Hershey’s bar. The ingredients are listed as Matthew’s qualifications and experience, along with his contact info.

On a completely unrelated note, Foodiggity is currently hiring… Please send your chocolate bars to be considered.
