If Well-Known Brands Such As Apple and Facebook Made Beer

main-img-bottles

If you’ve ever wondered what a beer made by Nike, Apple, or Facebook would look like… wonder no more.

Beer-tualising is a fun project by printsome, who created fictional beer labels for a few brands not known for brewing.

What these corporate beers would taste like is still left to the imagination. But we can only assume that Nike beer would share flavor profiles with most energy drinks, while iBeer would taste great for a few months, before you’d have to upgrade to iBeer 1.1.

These Redesigned Fast Food Logos Get Real

1

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.

Artist Creates Plaster Versions of Everything He’s Eaten Over The Past Year

foodchain

What appears to be nothing more than an exercise in minimalist food art, is actually a pretty intense project by Israeli-Dutch artist Itamar Gilboa.

The Food Chain Project is a pop-up art installation, that is not only an extensive collection of food and drinks sculpted in plaster, but is representative of everything the artist had consumed over a period of 365 days.

Over 8,000 items are represented in stark white, and is meant to call attention to global food issues. All of the food items are on sale, with proceeds donated to organizations such as FairFood International and Youth Food Movement.

Snack Foods Repackaged To Help Them Appear Artisanal

artisanal-1

If you’ve ever wondered how you could make those junk foods of yours appear more fancy… it’s all about the packaging.

Dan Meth over at Buzzfeed tests this theory, by repackaging some very unsophisticated food, to make them appear more artisanal.

For example, Slim Jim become Slim James, and suddenly the meat-like stick is suitable for the snootiest of food snobs.

Although, I do not agree with a single-chamber package of Nerds… That’s some low-brow shit.

Food For Thought, Books Packaged As Canned Food

food-for-thought-books-02

The problem with most books, besides all of the big words and lack of pictures, is that they’re never packaged to look like food. Designer, Maria Mordvintseva-Keeler, is here to help change that.

Food For Thought is a design concept that rethinks ordinary linear books, by packaging them in food cans. Three food-themed books — Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Naked Lunch and Dinner at the Homesick Restaurant — also include elements of the book plot illustrated on the can. Finally, pretty pictures to look at.
