FormFiftyFive

Design inspiration from around the world.

What the FFF?

Founded in 2005 by an ever growing group of designers, illustrators, coders and makers eager to collect and share the best design work they came across, FormFiftyFive soon became an international showcase of creative work.

We scour the world’s best creative talent to keep FormFiftyFive a foremost collection of current design from both the young upstarts and well known masters. We’re constantly on the look out for new features that dig even deeper into what’s happening in the design community, so get in touch if there’s something you’ld like to see on here.

Have a look round, if you see something you love or hate be sure to comment, and drop us a line if there’s a juicy bit of creative gold you’d like to see on here.

Keep it real, the FFF team.

FFF Update

Chris Gray @ WeShallSee.co.uk

At last we’ve managed to tidy up FormFiftyFive! We’ve shortened the list of categories, simplified the type in colour and weight, taken away everything unnecessary and added our little spread the love button! The new K2 template is working great, my favourite feature is the drop down archives menu that appears when you scroll down!

A huge thank you to Alex Nelson for helping us so much with the re-design! He’s one of three new authors to join FFF this month. Also joining us are Eddy McGowan (who we’ve linked a couple of times) and Mark Ferguson, who’s a pretty excellent designer from Manchester!

We now have 12 revolving headers that use our Fs, I’m looking into getting some extra Fs made to send around the world to be photographed and featured in our header! If you got a nice idea of where to shoot the F let us know and we might send one to you.

  1. Nice one Glenn. I am quite fond of the dropdown archives feature ;)

  3. Same here! Did you try and drag the slider? The trim feature is pretty handy as well if you’re looking for a specific post and you don’t want to load all the images.

    Although we had some comments that it doesn’t work so well in IE?

    If anyone is having problems using the archives toolbar let us know ;)

  9. Welcome guys. Liking the redesign – subtle in places but really feels like FFF is maturing like a fine wine – taking on it’s own personality beyond the standard wordpress.

    Still waiting on that “mad skills” button? Haha

  13. That’s next on my list! Although I think you’ll find the technical term is “skillz”

    Seriously though, if anyone has any ideas about functionality they’d like to see on the site, drop us a line on hello@formfiftyfive.com and I’ll see what I can do!

  25. I could photograph the Fs somewhere in NY for you? I have a few ideas.
    And I don’t mean in Times Square or at the Flat Iron building.

  27. Sounds good Kate! Once I get them made I’ll send one over. Won’t happen any time soon though I’m afraid. Swamped with work at the moment!

To my mind you should keep it, because they are not 100% similar. In this case all other brands, which have similar logos, for example circles, or brands like Airbnb, should stop using their brands. You have wrote about your …

A logo is not art*, it’s a signifier of a service or thing (person, place company etc). In current identity fashion simpler is better, increasing the probability that multiple designers will settle on similar images. If you want exclusive ownership, …
