Shhhh at the front! If you’re an angry cinema-goer, the kind who tuts whenever someone rummages in their popcorn or fumbles with their fruit gums, this is for you.

Renowned food design studio Bompas & Parr has created luminescent ice cream so movie watchers can see their snacks in the dark. Created for Cornetto, the ice creams feature the iconic waffle cone and chocolate top, but with a glowing yellow filling.

Dermatattooists

Forget your everyday health check. We’re talking tattoo checks, thanks to Brazilian suncare brand Sol de Janeiro and its efforts to raise skin cancer awareness.

Proof of brands putting people’s needs before their own, Sol de Janeiro trained over 450 tattooists with the skills to be able to spot skin lesions and the basic signs of skin cancer.

Corporate crafting

As an independent artist or designer, selling your goods in bulk can often be a challenge. Etsy, ‘the world’s most vibrant online marketplace’, realised this – and created a new platform where artists and designers can connect with professional buyers to sell larger quantities of their goods, for sale in retail stores. ‘Etsy Wholesale’ is launching in beta soon, with the aim of creating a network where artists, designers and buyers can all benefit from each other’s expertise.

Windows 8 – my cover

Look out for the December issue of many Conde Nast magazines, including Wired, The New Yorker, Vogue and Glamour. For one issue only, these covers will resemble Windows 8 Start screens – as part of the company’s initiative to inform readers about its content on the new platform. The cover attachments aren’t paid ads for Microsoft – these can be found inside the magazines. Instead, the covers are coordinated with them.

Prints charming

Lending a little High Street charm to America’s beloved retail chain, Target’s collaboration with Liberty of London hits shelves nationwide.

The collection—reinterpreting Liberty’s limited edition Merci line for spring at a lower price point—plays to both brands’ recent successes with similar collaborations. The upshot, floral-printed apparel for men, women and kids, as well as accessories, bedding, stationery, furniture and bicycles done up in paisleys and other patterns by the centuries-old fabric company, fills the space to the brim. Along with blooming flowers (like daffodils and hydrangeas), props, and build-outs all keeping to the theme too, the shop itself has the dizzyingly gorgeous effect of a classic all-over Liberty print.
