Minimalist Juice Packaging

October 10, 2011

Christopher Jobson

This is some of the most honest and beautiful packaging I’ve encountered in a while. Designed by Doubleday and Cartwright for BluePrintJuice, the entire label is simply a list of plain ingredients printed in a color that contrasts with the juice inside. If only all food packaging could be this user-friendly. Steve Jobs would approve. (via design work life)

Epic “Back to the Start” Stop-Motion Ad for Chipotle (Plus Bonus Making-Of Goodness)

August 31, 2011

Christopher Jobson

The blogs are buzzing today over this new stop motion ad for Mexican food chain Chipotle by London-based Johnny Kelly, set to a Willie Nelson cover of the Coldplay song, The Scientist. The video features the story of a farmer seduced by profits into large-scale unsustainable and unhealthy farming practices who decides to go “back to the start”, ridding the farm of its factory machinery resulting in happier and healthier animals. The quality of the animation is simply incredible and I was left wondering how on Earth they had accomplished some of the shots. Luckily the production team at Clapham Road Studios was a step ahead of me and shot a making-of clip that shows the enormous table containing the farm and hundreds of components used to make it move.

Many more production photos can be found here. Over the past decade I have eaten at Chipotle so irrationally frequent, they should just wrap my burritos in common stock. (via laughing squid)

The work of Judith G. Klausner is making the rounds today, specifically her Oreo Cameo series, but I was struck most by the absurd beauty of her embroidered toast pieces. She’s also mastered the art of Chex cereal needlepoint. (via quipsologies)

Broccoli House

Lamenting that he couldn’t build a real tree house for his son, Brock Davis (previously here and here) set out to build this Broccoli House using some glue and balsa wood. I love this so much.

Edible Zoetropes

May 23, 2011

Christopher Jobson

First we had the Cylotrope and then the Turntable Phonotrope and now the whirling edible creation of Alexandre Dubosc called Alimation created for the 2011 Annecy International Animated Film Festival. Using crepes, cakes, and towers of matches Dubosc attempts to “animate the taste buds.”

My Drunk Kitchen: Brunch

May 20, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Today you’re definitely getting a mix of high-brow and low-brow art, so bear with me. I’m sorry but this is the most brilliant cooking video I’ve ever seen. The sixth in a series by Hanna Hart, who gets drunk and teaches you how to cook. Sort of. Beware language. (thnx, byron)
