It’s a Hershey’s Chocolate Bar. Besides the always-welcome chocolate, what’s so awesome about that? Look again. It’s not a Hershey’s Bar at all. It’s a ‘Hirschy’s Bar' - a beautifully-designed, awesomely original resumé created by Michigan-based designer Matthew Hirsch for a class assignment.
"We had to create a thank you that could be sent to various creative directors who speak to our class," he explained. "In hopes of striking up a dialogue, while giving these creative directors information about my skill set, I created a Hirschy’s Bar."
Combining a bit of wordplay with innovative, elegant design and, of course, the gift of chocolate, seems like a fantastic way to distinguish oneself for prospective employers and clients. Just make sure you bring enough for everybody.

Dutch artist Henk Hofstra took Wilhelmina Square in the city of Leeuwarden, one of the largest city squares in Holland, and filled it with 8 massive eggs, all sunny side up and measuring nearly 100 feet in diameter. The yolks are enormous domes ranging in size from 8 to 25 feet in diamater. He calls this whimsical installation an Art Eggcident.
"I hope it becomes a meeting place with room for art," says Henk. "Art that is different than a framed picture on the wall or a boring bronze sculpture. Art that shows us a different look, surprises us, or makes us angry or happy. Art that allows photographers to grab their cameras and arouses journalists. Art that evokes emotion, or provokes wild laughter."
Although Hofstra had to spend 4 months in various planning meetings with concerned companies and local authorities simply to get permission to create his colossal public art project, it took only 2 days to physically create all of those enormous eggs.

Hashtag Highlight: Sampling South Korea’s Bread Culture Through #빵스타그램 (“breadstagram”)
For more photos and videos of the wide variety of breads found in South Korea, browse the #빵스타그램 (“breadstagram”) hashtag.
In South Korea, bread has historically never been a prominent part of the daily diet. As European bakeries expand their businesses into Seoul, however, local’s love for the food has grown. Bread has even taken in root in the culture to the point of becoming a popular topic for local TV shows and magazines.
While classic croissants and baguettes populate the regular lineup, the most common types of breads from these bakeries contain sweet fillings such as red bean paste, sweet potato paste or whipped cream. Bakers sometimes also add sweet rice in the flour dough for chewiness, top the bread like pizzas or make animal shapes out of them to add an extra creative twist. Local Instagrammers have picked up on documenting this new wave of bread culture by adding the #빵스타그램 hashtag (bbangstagram or, translated, “breadstagram”) to their photos and videos of bread to share their personal favorites and reviews with the Instagram community.
