This is a rather cool idea, and a totally different take on clever catering services. It comes from illustrator Emma Rios for quirky food purveyors Bompas & Parr.

As you can see from the picture, this 2D banquet contains zero calories and looks seriously cool. It transports you visually into a cartoon-like dining experience that can not fail to impress.

Implications - Though 3D technology has recently made an unignorable mainstream comeback, today's creative mind seems to prefer a 2D, cartoon-like aesthetic in photography, film and more. This provides an ironic twist to art and design that reverts from technological advancement, serving as a refreshing twist for the digitized consumer of today.
