Whimisical Wildlife Plates

The Wild Dining Plates Let You Play Dress Up With Your Food

— July 14, 2014 — Art & Design
If you’re one to get easily bored with your food, the Wild Dining plates creatively let you use use your meal to dress up the printed animal on the plate.

The Wild Dining plates come with several different animal portraits for you to choose from such as a gorilla, a panda, a lion or all three. Each wildlife plate features a black and white image of the animal dressed up in human clothes, like a dress or a suit, inviting you to become an artist and customize their appearance. You could add spaghetti noodles to the panda’s hair, a carrot mohawk to the lion or a french fry crown and a ketchup mustache to the gorilla. Now you’ll have more incentive to finish the food on your plate so you can get to the animal image lurking underneath.


Trend Themes
1. Interactive Dining - Incorporate elements of play into the dining experience, such as customizable plates that encourage creativity.
2. Personalization - Consumers are looking for unique ways to express themselves and products that can be customized to fit their unique personalities or preferences.
3. Visual Storytelling - New products and services that focus on incorporating visually compelling narratives and characters can provide experiential value that is often missing in traditional dining.
Industry Implications
1. Home Goods and Kitchenware - Innovative brands that incorporate play and personalization into traditional household products could appeal to a younger demographic or consumers looking for non-traditional home decor.
2. Food and Beverage Industry - Restaurants or food companies that create fun and interactive dining experiences are more likely to stand out in a crowded marketplace and attract new customers.
3. Art and Design - Artists and designers who specialize in visually compelling, playful designs could leverage their skills to create new offerings within the home goods and food industries.
