So the end of the world is supposed to happen December 21 this year and while you may be more concerned about whether summer will actually get here first, Mexican design agency, Menosunocerouno, have created the Just in Case survival kit.
While the kit is nothing more than a bit of self-promotional fun, you can’t deny good, well-executed design when you see it and by re-packaging a collection of ‘essential’ products (all hand picked from Mexico) it’s a stylish way of seeing in armageddon. Yellow and black, the most informative colours in a hazard, are used to full effect here as each item is individually wrapped with a handy info card included as well. Among basics like water, a knife and matches, you can have a swig of Mayan liqueur and a bite of cinnamon-laced dark chocolate too. The end of the world doesn’t look so bad now hey?!
