I thought this Wheel of Nutrition Plate is pretty funny. So, then I looked to see if ensuring the proper portion size was a big enough problem that someone would need to use an illustrated, color-coded surface to lay out their food. I guess some people do.

Optical Illusion Of Time

General Design, Product Design, Product Innovation

creative clock product

There are few means by which people have found to tell time. Then there are the many ways that people have created to display time. This Aspiral Clock is a very unique approach to showing the time of day, and dizzying at that. As time marches forward, this spiral clock slowly turns, appearing to advance a rolling ball until it reaches the 12 o’clock hour and begins all over again. Clever.

food-inspired architecture design

Did you know that sticky rice was used in the design of ancient Chinese and Tibetan architecture? Using the glutinous properties of rice in their mortar, they were able to preserve tombs, pagodas and city walls, all of which have withstood the test of time. I can not imagine the number of earthquakes the rice-fortified structures have endured since first introduced during the Ming Dynasty!
