Design inspiration from around the world.

What the FFF?

Founded in 2007 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.

Lorem Ipsum


Yesterday morning the postie delivered a strange brown envelope in the post. Thinking ‘what on earth is this’ I opened it to find a pink that in the sunshine was so bright and shocking there should probably be a warning on the envelope. Titled ‘Lorem Ipsum’, it is an ‘incredibly sporadic collection of cross-disciplinary design writing from Scotland’.

The people/person behind it seem to be after the news studio who have a sort of temporary cargo site online at the moment but certainly one to watch. The layouts and typography are well crafted, dynamic and fresh but thankfully it’s not all just style. The articles and content really are equally impressive and engaging.


Some of the highlights in this issue: Centrefold illustration by Susan Roan. Andrew Neely of LongLunch writes about talking designers. Dr Paul Rodgers examines the digital grey-areas between design, art and architecture, and After the News provides a taster of the discussion at a debate on the role of awards in the design industry.





Apparently this copy is a ‘limited edition 2 of 3’. Which is either a mistake or I am very honored indeed! I’m sure there must be more than 3 copies as it’s certainly litho printed. On the after the news site they say you can get your hands on it by just sending through a stamped addressed A4 envelope… and for our Scottish and UK readers in particular, I’d highly recommend it.

Altogether it’s all looking very promising and I’ll certainly be looking out for the next issue. Though I’ll be donning my shades just in case. Many thanks to the mysterious sender!

  9. That would be by my good friend Neil McGuire of After The News in Glasgow. He also write about design at his blog OffBrand and is also the man behind many interviews of designers/agencies at Looks a lovely piece!

  13. Good content, top bloke. Neil’s very good at scratching way beneath the surface of design, somehow managing to maintain a huge enthusiasm for practicing and teaching his discipline whilst firing off angry salvos and questioning the politics and purposes of it all. Or something.

  15. hello,

    yes the limited edition thing is a total fabrication, as a play on the art/design, is it isn’t it mass produced, sort of not very funny joke.

    – the previous one was limited edition 47 of 12,345,545 or something like that. thinking that as LI is entirely self-funded i’ll indulge myself in these crap jokes…

    thanks for everyone saying nice things about me and the project, as blog-comment land can be a harsh place. never google thy-self…

Without a doubt my favourite is the otter. They hold hands to avoid floating away from each other and mother otters fluff up their babies by blowing air into their fur so that they float meaning the mums can swim …

My favourite is the badger, with a lovely distinct colourings, a funny noise and an odd shape to go with it, which I think sums up Britain in a a way.
