    Do you agree that presentation of a product makes a difference to the buying decision? What if you find a bag of chips on a shelf in a supermarket that has odd colors and unattractive packaging, do you prefer buying it? And what if you see a pack of noodles that has an impressive design and comes in attractive packaging?
    We strongly believe that packaging can be of great importance to a product, or to say least for the first purchase, and later purchases are sure to be based on the quality of the product. But you need someone to first try a product for subsequent sales and here is where the packaging plays its part. Don't believe us, have a look.

    Some of us are into cars, while some are into motorbikes and some are into bikes. And when it comes to cycling, there are health benefits too. Apart from that, our cars and motorbikes are a part of a problem that we are facing with clean air.
    It we aren't wrong, then tire for road bikes come in three styles - clincher, tubular and tubeless. But why don't we have a modular tire? Something like a zip-on?
    Now we have a zip-on bicycle tire system - reTyre; it lets you change your tire in seconds to match your terrain. It lets you instantly swap out your tire treads for a better biking experience. These tires come with integrated zippers that give your bike added capabilities.
    The reTyre Modular System consists of two parts - reTyre ONE, it's the base tire with integrated zippers attached to the sidewall and the reTyre Skins, interchangeable surfaces that you can zip up depending on the terrain you are about to ride on.
    And when it comes to installation, if you can zip up your jacket, then you can change the skins in few seconds.

    h/t: retyre, kickstarter.

  • 11/21/18--01:37: Incredible Latte Art.
  • Coffee is one the most preferred beverages and when it comes with these incredible art designs on it, what more can one ask for.
    Latte art is made by adding micro foam on the top of espresso-based drinks. It's also created by drawing in the top layer of foam.
    There are two main types of latte art - freepouring, it's far more common in American cafés and etching that involves a tool to create a pattern.
    It looks simple when you view it but it does need expertise to create them, here is a guide.

  • 11/22/18--07:54: Incredible Camouflage Art.
  • If we say camouflage, what do you think of? And if we say chameleon, what do you think of? And if we say camouflage artist, then whom do you think of? Liu Bolin is amazing with his camouflage artwork; he is the invisible man, the master of camouflage. He is capable of disappearing into any surroundings and it takes hours of preparation to it. He is a living canvas; he paints his body to become a part of the surroundings, to seamlessly merge. When it comes to chameleon, it got the nature's gift to blend into its surroundings, but when it comes to artists it takes dedication, hard work and talent.

  • 11/23/18--04:05: 15 Awesome Leaf Carvings.
  • Leaf carving requires precision, skill and steady hands, as the surface of the leaf needs to be removed without damaging the rest of it.
    Mostly leaves of Chinar tree are used; these resemble maple leaves and are well suited for sculpting. Their apt shape and texture makes it perfect for the artwork.
    It's quite a lengthy process that runs into several months and involves drying, boiling, shaving and peeling and again drying.
    The artist carves the leaf by hand using tools, and develops a landscape or a picture.
    As these carvings are made from actual leaf, no two artworks are same.

  • 11/28/18--06:29: Awesome Super-Sized Animals.
  • These super sized stuffed animals are sure to remind us all of our childhood. When we were kids, stuffed toys had their own important place in our bedroom and our lives. And the best part was, the bigger the better. Now these super sized stuffed animals are so big that even grown ups will look small in front to them. These are the creation of Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman. And the best part of Hofman is he never fails to impress, and what more he is the benchmark for himself, as we haven't come across another artist whose work we can compare with his. Awesome and impressive as usual.
    Just kind of a thought, wont these artists get tired being the best?

    Pchak's Nuts and Dried Fruits Packaging: When we came across this clever packaging for nuts and dried fruits, we just remembered Chip and Dale, their hollow tree and Donald Duck. Do you recollect any of those Chip and Dale cartoons where these two would be happily munching on nuts in the hollow of the trees while angry Donald would be grumbling at the base of the tree, least most of the time?
    This creative nuts and dried fruits packaging design comes from Backbone Branding made for Pchak. This creative packaging design brings an element of nature in our daily life while taking its inspiration from the name Pchak (the Armenian equivalent of 'tree hollow').
