DRY’s Five Best Finds: March 2013

Friday, March 29th, 2013

We come across a lot of amazing stuff on the internet every day and always make sure to pass it along on Twitter and Facebook. However, some of that amazing stuff really rises above the rest. With that, here are the top five things we found and shared this month in food, design, green, creativity and more.

Photo Series Shows Classic Food Combinations as Pantone Swatches

Pantone-Swatches

In his photo series ”Pantone Pairings,” Minneapolis-based designer David Schwen photographs food combinations that go perfectly together. Anybody that combines food and design is a friend of ours!

j.viewz Plays ‘Teardrop’ With Vegetables

Whether you’re a fan of Massive Attack, House, or vegetables, this electronic rendition of ‘Teardrop’ is quite impressive. Give it a watch and listen!

Mealku – Online Delivery Service Lets Chefs Shares Their Leftovers

Based on the idea of “share more, waste less, eat better,” Mealku is a homemade meal-sharing cooperative that lets people in the community cook meals for one another; it’s essentially the marriage of an anonymous potluck and delivery service. At only $10 a month, it’s a fantastic way to create better community while reducing food waste. Plus, it’s an adventurous way to explore new foods!

The Edible Masterpiece – Ida Frosk Plays With Her Food

Norwegian photographer Ida Frosk has a knack for playing with her food. In fact, she does it so well that she’s recreating original artistic masterpieces in food form, along with tasty original works. Follow IdaFrosk on Instagram and jump in on the action yourself.

Coffeetivity – Ambient Sounds to Boost Your Workday Creativity

Some people need absolute silence to do their best work, while others require music to break up the monotony. A third party of worker bee thrives when in an active, moving environment such as a coffee shop, and that’s exactly what Coffeetivity brings. Coffeetivity plays ambient coffee shop background noise – undecipherable chatter, clinking dishware, laptop pecking – and is best utilized when played slightly quieter than any music to which you may want to listen. Give it a try and see if it works for you!

Strangers No More: Grubwithus Creates Social Media Powered Dinner Parties to Meet Neighbors and Future Friends

The ultimate irony of our technological lives these days is that, while every technology seems to try and connect us, that same technology often sequesters us to having our noses in our phones on the bus instead of getting to know our neighbors. That’s where Grubwithus shines: creating opportunities for local community members to connect at local restaurants around family-style dinners. While it’s not in every city, you can sign up for your city to be next on the list (we’re already on the list for Seattle!).
