As designers and creative types, we are continually inspired by art and culture all over the globe. We love to look at the world around us, even the regular, every day stuff and put it into our own designs. Our work exemplifies not only the visible creativity in the world, but the extraordinary visions that come from inside our own imaginations. Nothing is ever too ridiculous or too mind-blowing here at Quiplip, which is why things like beer vending machines and Coca-Cola robots are so inspiring to us.
Wait, beer vending machines? Yes! And while we’re at it, what do Nikes, SMART Cars, Pringles and sushi have in common? If you guessed that all those things can be purchased from a vending machine in Tokyo, than you’re a freaking genius. Or, more likely, you’ve been to Japan. With about one machine for every 23 people, this Vending Machine Utopia offers ample opportunities to grab whatever you’re craving – yes, even sushi. And, if it’s raining, you can get sushi and an umbrella from the same machine! Convenience has never tasted so good. Not only are these vending machines well-maintained, they almost always take bills on the first try and never judge as you shamelessly pay for a bottle of tequila entirely in 10 yen coins. Although we may not be in Japan, the idea of thinking differently, even at lunch time is a major part of our lifestyle here at Quiplip. And we encourage you to try it too! Use one of our greeting cards to invite someone out for sushi or slip one in their brown bag lunch stashed in the office ‘fridge as a reminder of their awesomeness. Heck, you could even send a card containing a really flat dollar and invite a coworker to share a bag of Doritos with you.
