Pizza Condoms Deliver

It’s been said that sex is like pizza… Even when it’s bad, it’s still pretty good. Now, thanks to a packaging concept by Russian designer Marina Malygina, the two have officially been combined. And it’s not bad.

The Pizza Condom is wrapped in what looks like a pizza with the works. And, to reinforce the theme, the condom is then housed in a small delivery box. How good your pizza will be, is completely up to the delivery boy.

Pantone Beer Packaging Matches The Color of The Beer Inside

If you pick your beer by color, a new packaging project by Spanish creative agency Txaber is just for you. The concept uses Pantone swatches to give you an idea of the beer that lies inside.

Whether you roll with a cold can of 1595 C, or you’re feeling bold and want to throw back a 426 C, the packaging let’s you know what’s in store before you crack it open.

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.

When New Zealand-based Think Packaging was asked to create a music-inspired box to hold a series of Beck’s Beer bottles, the result was a vintage boom box.

Housed in the retro music player are six bottles of beer — each label inspired by a particular music genre. So, grab a box, throw it over your shoulder, and head to your next 80s party. Your neon-clad friends will thank you.

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.
