Using Pantone Colors to Communicate Beer Varietals
I’m a fan of designers who use Pantone colors and branding in clever ways. Combine that with a love for beer and you’ll quickly understand why this concept jumped out at me.
If you’ve ever wanted to see the best views of Aurora Borealis, the soon-to-be-built Krystall hotel is the place for you! Developed by the company Dutch Docklands, the snowflake-shaped hotel will float within the Arctic Circle, in the fjords near the Norwegian town of Tromso.
Another interesting traffic light design concept. This probably makes more sense than my previous post. However, I’d add the visual timer on all three lights.
Design concept by: Damjan Stankovic. Lots of other goodies on his site.
Great concept. The copy could use a bit of work, though.
Nomiku. An Immersion Circulator that helps you cook like a top chef.
Never heard of an immersion circulator before today. But digging a little deeper into both the product and its applications, I appreciate the technology and like Nomiku’s startup story.
Check out the Nomiku website for more info.
I discovered this product via a story posted by PFSK.
An interactive poster that combines design and music.
A great example of breaking design paradigms.
Via Green Renaissance:
Dry stone wall with tree built by Eric Landman in memory of his wife Kerry. Kerry Landman Memorial, Island Lake Conservation Area, Mono, Ontario. The main wall is Limestone with local rounded granite fieldstones that were found on site to represent the leaves. A lot of them had green moss on them that added to the effect of the stones looking like foliage.

Ecovention, LLC is a design, licensing firm and manufacturing firm dedicated to improving outmoded, outdated and wasteful food packaging. Ecovention, LLC is marketing its first product, the GreenBox (US Patent 7,051,919), a pizza box manufactured from 100% recycled material. The top of the GreenBox breaks down into convenient serving plates, eliminating the need for disposable plates. The bottom of the ‘GreenBox’ converts easily into a handy storage container, eliminating the need for plastic wrap, tin foil or plastic bags. The perforations and scores that create this functionality allow for easy disposal into a standard-sized recycling bin. Made from a standard pizza blank, the GreenBox requires no additional material or major redesign and can therefore be produced at no additional manufacturing cost. Ecovention, LLC owns the utility patent on the GreenBox.
