Domino’s Handmade Pan Pizza

Designed by Crispin Porter + Bogusky | Country: United States

“CP+B just created the pizza boxes for Domino’s new Handmade Pan Pizza and we wanted to share the designs with you. The box’s design centers around Domino’s commitment to transparency, by exposing a “dirty little secret” of the pizza business; most of the pan pizzas that people are eating are made with frozen dough. Domino’s, however, uses fresh dough that’s never frozen. To highlight this, CP+B created the nearly all-black box as a visual reminder that the pizza inside was both handmade and baked directly in a pan, while the outside of the box is loaded with fun facts. Like how it took three whole years to develop, and how each is made with fresh.”

The Largest Black Marker Collection in the World Now Online

The Largest Black Marker Collection in the World Now Online in art Category

Back in 2011, we posted about artist Allister Lee, who was on a journey to collect and document all the black markers in the world. Being slightly obsessed with drawing myself, I’m also a little obsessed with markers and pens so I can relate to Allister’s desire to get a chance to use all of these markers. I’m sure many of you out there who love to draw or paint can also relate to the joy that new pens and art supplies can bring.

He has just launched BlackIsBeautiful.ca, a weekly-updated online resource that documents a growing collection of over 750 black markers and black marking devices. At the moment, the count is at 105. Featuring a searchable database by brand, a visual database of the markers, and even a section that “connects the dots between people and their interaction with black markers.”

From vintage glass-barrel Magic Markers, Wescosa Mini-Wides, metal-jacket Sakuras, to the contemporary Super Sharpie, this online resource shows a historical and international spectrum of black marker design appealing to black marker users worldwide.

Minimalist Lamp called Aurora by The Good Flock in home furnishings Category

I love that you can use this lamp on a desk surface or mount it to the wall as a sconce with a single screw. Made of white oak and finished with 100% Tung Oil, this lamp kind of reminds me a bit of a candlestick. It also comes in a black finish.

Kroll Show (2013)

Kroll Show

“Show a little more very much respect to this beautiful creature here.” — Bobby Bottleservice

A rapid-fire postmodernist piss-take, the brief but striking main titles for Kroll Show are as much a mission statement for actor Nick Kroll’s sketch comedy show as they are a checklist of pop cultural touchstones. In dozens of dubstepping blasts, TGIF broadcasting, famous landmarks, reality television, blockbuster cinema, advertising, junk food, and corporate America are all roasted in a pithy cavalcade of Kroll-ified logos, brands, and signage. Full of fine print easter eggs for pause-pressers, the sequence strobes at the audience and ends before they know what hit them.

Jonathan Krisel, Kroll Show series director and executive producer, describes the process behind the sequence:

I am a big fan of title design and wanted to create something that was short and sweet – and in no way resembled a television show’s titles. We use a lot of title sequences within the show, so to do another intro for the show itself seemed redundant. I just wanted a blast of energy to launch it. I had recently watched Enter the Void and of course was blown away by the titles. Apparently a lot of people were, because I found pretty quickly that Kanye and numerous others had aped the exact look…

Netframe by Cate & Nelson for OFFECCT

Cate & Nelson’s idea behind Netframe was to create a piece of furniture that consumes as little material as possible while maintaining a high comfort. “In order to succeed with this challenge we had to turn everything upside down in the development process. We wanted it to be easy to produce with minimal time and material usage”, says Nelson Ruiz-Acal, one half of Cate & Nelson.

Netframe was developed into a very comfortable piece of furniture with extremely low impact on the environment. Cate & Nelson believe it is important to see the wholeness in their design, that the product is responsible at all stages; from production to usage, which is very apparent in their design of Netframe.
