Design inspiration from around the world.

What the FFF?

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 Relaunch


It’s been in the pipeline since last year, and now, at long last, we’re ecstatic to launch FFF 2.0. Times have changed in blogland and we know if your standing still your actually going backwards. At FFF we can see where we want to be, and that’s going forward, which wasn’t going to happen without a value-added proposition to our core-market. That’s what this is. It’s all about the user-experience for us, making FFF faster, better, stronger; and to do that, we needed to differentiate our USP. That USP is what be believe FFF 2.0 brings to the table, it’s like an 800 pound gorilla standing out in a crowd of pasty, underdeveloped designer torsos. Does it look sh*t? Yes AND no. Of course it does, but it’s memorable and it says three words to the competition “Ready, Fire, Aim”. I’m talking September Industry, Dirty Mouse, TypeNeu, Computerlove, It’s Nice That, QBN, AisleOne, The Strange Attractor, Thinking for a living, yada, yada, yada… we’re going to kill you and eat you.
Nothing personal, it’s just business.

In saying all that after Glenn and Alex, you guys have the most important opinions, so FFF 2.0… Vote Up or Vote Down…

Just my 2 cents.

  95. This is a huge improvement over the previous, well frankly, disappointing design. It looked like all the other design sites. Finally you have listened to the inner you and now wear the clothes you really want to wear.

    I say congrats.

  113. @ Katie

    Your a bit late to the party, the site was re-skinned. Unfortunately, due to an unacceptably high number of complaints for burned retinas, we had to take it down.

    Back to the drawing board!
