$200 Burger

(Apologies in advance to all my vegetarian reader out there) Introducing Burger King’s $200 burger! Yes, you read that correctly, BURGER KING has a $200 burger!

“Wagyu beef, white truffles, pata negra ham slices, cristal onion straws, Modena balsamic vinegar, lambs lettuce, pink Himalayan rock salt, organic white wine and shallot-infused mayonnaise all served up on an Iranian saffron and white truffle dusted bun.”

Pfff What? No Tyrannosaurus egg on there?

This work of art will be on sale once per week in London and there is a happy ending to the story – proceeds go to the Help a London Child charity. You could always save yourself the heart-attack and just donate $200 straight to the charity but that’s just my craaaaazy opinion.

This burger does not win the biggest burger award though… Who here is a fan of In & Out? You know the double-double? The 4×4 animal style? The mythical 8 by 8. You know what I’m sayin’? I know a girl who even attempted a 16 patty burger. But my friends that is nothing… what I am about to show you will change your life…

And then there’s…

Hahahaha life-changing!

Animation of the Day: “I’m Dead Inside”

im-dead-inside2

One of my favourite animators Dan Britt returns with another brilliant short, “I’m Dead Inside”, handling the visuals and the music! He previously contributed to Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared and made the brilliant animation “I Decided to Leave”. I can’t really tell if things like this are considered dark humour or just regular humour anymore. Maybe you can let me know one way or the other.

I highly recommend you watch “I’m Dead Inside” over on Booooooom TV.

Pattern — The Simple Drawing App Every Designer Has Been Waiting For

1-pattern-screenshot

Pattern is a fantastic little iPad app (available in the App Store as of today) created by former Facebook product designer Andy Chung, specifically for the purpose of ideation and early stage design. Its simple tools and charming interface feel equal parts whiteboard and grid paper.

I love this app! You can see in the video clip below just how beautifully considered it is. Everything feels natural and intuitive, and it makes creating with the Apple Pencil and gestures fast and fun. A web layout with notes scrawled over it, literally takes seconds.

 

 

Andy has given us 5 promo codes to download Pattern for free! We’ll hook up the first 3 people who leave a comment here telling us what crazy thing you hope it will help you design.

At the end of the day we’ll also pick 2 more people from all the comments to also receive the promo codes (I may pick the funniest two answers, just saying).

Hit the button below and scroll to the bottom of this post to leave a comment! There’s a few more images of the app down there as well.
