Coffee Cups of The World, A Photo Series of Beautiful Takeaway Cups

Go Get Em Tiger, Los Angeles

Go Get Em Tiger, Los Angeles

As most of you may not realize — because there’s always that same green mermaid on your coffee — is that takeaway coffee cups are often an exercise in minimalist beauty and sharp graphic design.

Artist Henry Hargreaves sees the aesthetic appeal in these disposable items, and has documented drinking vessels from around the globe, with Coffee Cups of The World.

The series takes us through this often overlooked art form — from the minimalist approach, to the hard sell of garish colors or a humorous cartoon.

Resum-Ale, A Four-Pack of Beer That’s Also a Designer’s Resume

beer-resume

If you’re looking for a creative way to find a job… Or you’d just like to get a few hiring managers loaded, you might consider a beer resume.

Resum-Ale is the work of designer/homebrewer/job-seeker Brennan Gleason. The 4-pack consists of a blonde ale that Gleason brewed himself, with career accomplishments and his experience printed across each bottle.

So, if you’re looking for a designer, or just want some free booze, get in touch with Gleason.

The Pizza Bed Will Deliver The Best Night’s Sleep

pizza-bed

If this bed looks appealing to you, it’s because it involves two of the best things ever… Pizza and sleep. Artist Claire Manganiello gets us, and has created The Pizza Bed.

If you ever bother to make your pizza bed, it does include a gooey layer of cheese and spicy pepperoni for which to sleep upon — along with a set of crust pillows to rest your weary head.

Now, the bad news. The Pizza Bed is merely a concept by Manganiello, and is not actually available for purchase. Great… Where are we supposed to sleep now?

Food Packaging Fueled by Brutal Honesty and Product Arrogance

1

Most of the time, our food packaging and their cute cartoon mascots lie to us. Well, at the very least, they’re just not as straightforward as these minimalist labels by London-based design student Beth Fox-Fuller.

Created as a concept for British supermarket chain ASDA — the project focuses on telling the shopper like it is. Even if the products do come off a bit arrogant and overconfident in their attempt to get you to bring them home.

Tauntaun Cuts Breaks Down The Beast’s Primal Parts and Comfy Belly

Tauntaun-Cuts-Limited-Edition-Print

Here at Foodiggity, we’re big fans of butcher diagrams. Even if the animal being segmented may or may not actually exist.

So, Tauntaun Cuts is right up our alley. Brought to us by Super7Store, the handy chart points out the transportation vehicle’s primal parts, as well as reminding us that its belly could be quite comfy and warm.

Tauntaun Cuts is available as a t-shirt or print.
