Bathroom Humor!

Everyone can always go for a little potty humor now and then right? Bathrooms can be a great place for people to showcase their designs and advertisements. The bathroom is the place where you have the viewer's full attention and can even catch them off guard if it is well thought out. Some may believe the first signs of bathroom entertainment are the writings we find on the walls about who hates who or who stole your best friend's boyfriend or maybe even the artistic sculptured toilet paper wads on the ceiling or we may go as far to say some people leave their runny art behind for all to view in the form of "spray paint" (if you follow our drift) . Whatever you may find as true art or just as pure disgusting, we all have had a great bathroom story to tell. These next pieces help make those bathroom experiences one step better. So sit back and enjoy the potty (party!). 

Time for a Brazilian!

Nothing like a nice "clean" hand shake!
This takes recycling to a whole new level.
 A very literal ad.

This makes us smile!
Sneaky little woman.
These sticky ads are naughty.
Flexibility is key in choosing the right toothbrush.
Believe it or not this ad is for treating sprains at an urgent care.
How did they know??
Yeah that's right, go back and wash your hands.
Who knew peeing could be such an adventure!
The scary truth. An ad for schizophrenia.
When mice start using your TP you have problems.
Another case for the flexibility of a toothbrush.
One of those ads that makes you go... awesome!

Sex Sells

Made you look! At least this blog won't get you fired from your job or give you horrible viruses that you're too embarrassed to bring in to get fixed. We are sure that everyone can pretty much agree that sex sells. This idea also pertains to the design field. We hate to admit it, but a pretty face on an ugly package might get that one customer to buy that shampoo. Designers try to sell the sexiness with how well the piece is laid out, the typographic treatment, the color pallet, the photo retouch and the overall thought that went into the piece. This does not always work and we have experienced many cases where some people may not care if you spent 2 hours choosing the perfect typeface and point size, but instead want to make sure both set of boobs are showing. These next images showcase just how sex can sell and how far people will go to get people to buy their products. Some are quite clever and funny, while others are just plain wrong. We're not sure that all of these pieces give us that "sexual healing," but we'll let you be the judge of that.

WOW is all we can say! 

Even cartoons are feeling the sexual tension.

Nice and sturdy shelves. 


Make sure to keep them occupied even at an early age.
Ad reads: Never let their toys die. Long Lasting Battery with Energizer.

Don't be stupid is right. 

Something nice to curl up to on your lonely pathetic nights. 

You have a sick mind!

Nothing to explain. 

Boob scarves! Buy a pair and get one free!

Viagra... keeping both the lights and you turned on!

The Hulk is Hung!.. oh wait pass me a beer.

Yeah... You wish.

Keeping Dad in check.

Play With Your Food!

So we all know that our parents always told us "not to play with our food." Well we're all grown up now and as designers we decided to dig up our inner child and start playing! People may think that graphic design is all about print and computers, but they are wrong! Design can be found everywhere we turn, even in food. These next images display the many ways that food can be used in the design world. Some images show food in its most natural form, while others show food in a manner we may never have expected to witness. It's time to keep an open mind and an open appetite. Don't leave us on an empty stomach... get your fill!
This roll might be stale, but we would never tell it that!

The new wedding tradition: ham and hot dog cakes!

We tend to like our pillows in whole wheat.

Just your typical meathead.
