A Vegan Dream Come True: Fast Food Across America Veganized

Standard

I get it. There are vegans who will only eat organic sprouted tofu on top of a quinoa kale salad sprinkled with non-gmo goji berries. More power to them. However, from my personal experience, the vast majority of vegans I know love junk food and many have expressed a longing for (convenient) vegan fast food (evidenced by the incredible success of the new Amy’s Drive Thru [@amysdrivethru] in Northern California … open 11.5 hours a day/7 days a week and the line is consistently around the block).

So, ThankTank Creative, in conjunction with MeatyVegan.com, presents the following famous fast food franchises … veganized.

“There is no life I know to compare with pure imagination. Living there, you’ll be free if you truly wish to be. If you want to view paradise, simply look around and view it. Anything you want to, do it. Want to change the world? There’s nothing to it.”

~ Willy Wonka (from Charlie and the Dark Chocolate Factory)

Animal Lyrics Project: A Vegan Exhibition (Working Title)

Standard

vegan poster art

I have always been a fan of great poster art and typography. The way in which type is used to effectively, and hopefully beautifully, communicate a message is the very foundation of design excellence. We often remind our clients that content comes first and that design follows.

“Content precedes design. Design in the absence of content is not design, it’s decoration.”

~ Jeffrey Zeldman

This was the inspiration for an online art exhibition we are curating at ThankTank Creative.

The “Animal Lyrics Project: A Vegan Exhibition (Working Title)” is a collection of assorted posters dedicated to three of our favorite things: animals, veganism, and music.

Inspired by lyrics from songs inspired by animals, written by some of the greatest song writers of our time, we are provided  exemplary content to drive our designs.

Not wanting to have all the fun ourselves (and wanting to make sure we didn’t end up with 10 orange posters), we invited nine other vegan designers to come on board to show of their design chops and to help this exhibit be as diverse as the song titles themselves. The list of designers, so far:

The “Animal Lyrics Project: A Vegan Exhibition (Working Title)” will officially go live on/around July 15th and be featured on numerous vegan blogs, Facebook pages, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, and through numerous respected media channels. Our hope is that these graphics will be shared and re-shared, promoting great design as well as the message of veganism.

Do you have an animal lyric you’d love to see turned into poster art? Comment below and, as always …

Go vegan.

What’s Your Favorite Vegan Blog? This One, Of Course! Let @VegNews Know!

Standard

VeggieAwards

It’s that time again! When VegNews Magazine wants you to vote! What’s your favorite Fancy Vegan Restaurant? What’s your Favorite Vegan Ice Cream? What’s your Favorite Vegan Hair Care Product? And … most importantly … what’s your Favorite Vegan Blog?

While I am a big fan of the 12 blogs listed at the survey link below, it seems VegNews inadvertently left out MeatyVegan.com. This happened last year, as well. Probably an innocent oversight on their part. But fear not, MeatyVegan faithful! They do have an option for “other” at the very bottom. Now, while I would prefer one day to not be considered an “other,” this is an excellent opportunity to write in MeatyVegan.com.

Why vote MeatyVegan? Well … remember these incredibly popular blog posts?

Yep. This is why you need to vote for this blog. This and 300 more blog posts of equal or higher quality. Where else can you learn about growavaginitis?

Click here today and make me the happiest blogger ever. Do something un-vegan and “upset the apple cart!”

Go vegan.
