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.

Raw Type

Raw_Type_05

Manchester based creative agency Raw are not scared of self-initiated promo briefs with successes like their Pantone Christmas Cards under their belts. Their latest project Raw Type was created to promote both the studio, who has recently been nominated for a Chip Shop Award as well as promote some healthy type experimentation. Armed with a copy of Font Book, a projector and space at the Islington Mill in Salford, Raw set to work experimenting, creating some interesting results that remind me a lot of the classic bond title sequence Form Russia With Love.

Now a few months old, the whole project has taken on a life of it’s own into a dedicated Raw Type site with some of the projections available to buy as screened printed posters. To mimic their birthing ground, K2 have printed them on sexy-to-the-touch Plike using phosphorescent ink (yep glow-in the dark to you and me kids).

Finally the Form Russia With Love is such a great title sequence I couldn’t help but not share it with you. So Enjoy.

  3. Classic Bond sequence, possibly the best?! certainly the most iconic.

  5. Yeah, it’s Robert Brownjohn at his best.

    The story goes that when he went in to do the pitch for these titles, he took his shirt off and danced in front of the projector – just because he believed in the idea so much and wanted everyone else to see that. Can you imagine someone doing that today?

    Legend.

    Is that how Raw Type was pitched internally as well?

  9. Luckily, we didn’t have to go that far!

    It was a sort of collaborative thing so everyone got involved at some stage.

Chatter

I’m a wolves fan and this has always bugged me. The hexagon gets in the way of the attitude the ‘wolf’ could have if it didn’t have to compete with such a strong shape and thick outer line… pedantic maybe …

Roberto D'Andria on Grafiky

Wonderful!

Jared G on Nick Deakin: Sheffield Children’s Hospital

Looks nice. Reminds me of the Church of London’s one-off ‘Good Times’ newspaper project.

Matt on The Five to Nine

Good. But not as good as the first.

Michael Thomason on Axis Animation – Gab Talk

Its eerly similar to the simbol on the artifact in quartermass and the pit
