If you drink coffee and travel, you know one of the first things you do when you land is look for that familiar green awning. Yes, Starbucks speaks the universal language of coffee love to people from all over the world, promising that lift with a uniquely bitter aftertaste.
The point is that Starbucks is everywhere. Need proof? Here you go.
The thing about fast food, or “quick casual dining” if you’re feeling fancy, is that most of the establishments are in fairly recognizable buildings. You know the pizza hut, the golden arches, and the big ‘ol bucket that offers you fried chicken.
That’s why when those business close up shop and move on with their lives a couple miles down the road, it makes sense for the incoming business to do something to kind of change up the look a bit. I’m not saying they have to completely renovate the place and start from scratch, but maybe put a little bit of effort into buying a new sign or something?
In other words, these buildings aren’t fooling anyone…
Maybe you want a tattoo, but you don’t want it to be something that everyone can immediately see. The solution? A tiny tattoo that still packs a powerful punch. You still know it’s there so you can feel like a badass, but it’s small enough to conceal when you go to visit your grandma.
If you’re in the market for ink inspiration that proves size doesn’t matter, we’ve got you covered…in tiny tats.
Tattoos are a big commitment. I mean, you have to first decide which design you want. Then you have to find a good artist and pay them to ink you up. And the result? Something that will be with you for the rest of your life.
If you can’t even commit to a brand of dish soap for more than a month, a tattoo might not be for you. Actually, a tattoo might be for you…but only in temporary form. They’re the perfect union of incredible ink without the lifelong commitment.
And if you’re looking for the real thing? These will give you a ton of ideas.
Can you truly believe what you see? This digital series by Turkish artist Aydın Büyüktaş distorts the streets of Istanbul into a surreal cityscape and will certainly challenge the your perspective.
The Inception-like project was originally inspired by Edwin A. Abbott’s satirical novella Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions, which is a story of a two-dimensional world occupied by geometric figures.
If you live in a region where snow is a thing, that means you’ve probably bundled up, ventured out, and tried to build a snowman. Good luck trying to roll those heavy balls of frozen ice across the grass, heft them up into layers, and then stick in two eyes made of coal.
But if you’re these people, you take the typical Frosty and turn it into something you hope never melts.
Design is very important, which is why most companies hire professionals to take over the job.
But what about when those professionals completely drop the ball? Well, it makes for a good laugh for those of us who aren’t actually involved in the fail, but hopefully these people are up for a performance review…
