Yan Yan Candy Design

I don’t know what I like best about these odd “dipping cookies” from Singapore. The fact that inside this cup are a few long, flat, tasteless cookies, each with the name of an animal and a fortune, or simply a comment? The fact that they are served with a totally artificial looking & tasting “strawberry” “cream”? The Hello Kitty strawberry drawings on the packaging? Hard to say.

The Sweet, Green Little Digger

I don’t usually covet construction equipment, but a Komatsu Excavator is parked two doors down from us on a building site and I can’t keep my eyes off of it. It is such a sweet piece of design: proportional, compact, small, and just generally cute. What’s more, the Komatsu Corporation has been recognized by the City of Los Angeles this year for its commitment to green technology. Now that’s what I call good design.
