FormFiftyFive

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.

Pintrest

In a similar vein to Designspiration & Dropular, new service Pintrest is an excellent searchable resource for collating and sourcing creative imagery and titbits. Acting as a digital pinboard, finds can be separated into various categories (or boards), tidily keeping all your newfound gems in their rightful place. A great resource for creating moodboards. Highly recommended.

  1. I’m not a huge fan of all these bookmarking services, as the content is often really generically ‘designy’ with everyone looking at the same things.
    But this one looks genuinely very good and varied. Nice post!

    Now, to request an invitation…

  3. Love Pintrest. Pretty easy to use for technophobes like me too. I hear there’s an iphone app version too for pinning on the go ;)

  5. only as good as their communities I’m afraid, judging from the front page of this (Babies, puppies and other twee garbage) I won’t be coming back

  7. You could change that – get some of those fake moodlanding pictures up there, post Wikileaks transcripts or uncover some Blackwater (Xe) shady dealings! ;)

  9. Oh man… and i’d just spent all my free time uploading and saving cool stuff on Designspiration ( http://ds.pn/TEAiM ). I can’t keep up. Think this will be filed under ‘potentially useful for moodboards but otherwise far too distracting and time-consuming’.

  11. Designispiration trumped ffffound.

    Pintrest looks too busy. Design fail IMO.

  13. Are there any bookmarking tools that let you upload?
    I’ve got loads of downloaded images that I’ve been collecting off blogs for years, and stolen from mates, and I could also do with a place to hold website screengrabs.

  15. Pinterest let you upload picture, but it’s a bit hided.
    After having tested many bookmarking sites (FFFFound, Designspiration, Kontribit, Dropular and others…) I can say that Pinterest is definitely the most well thought and designed. I might not look “pretty” but it’s sooo usable !

  19. I’m a fan of Pinterest and the moodboard method of collecting visual references is a great way of letting users decide how they organise their pins. Clicking on an image takes the user to its source – a feature that was lacking on FFFFOUND resulting in a lot of visual content with very little context.

    With Pinterest (and other similar resources) there’s always a high probability that the ‘kitten in a cereal bowl’ image will get repinned again and again. But selecting the moodboards you wish to follow can prevent rainbows, unicorns and cats being burned into your retinas. Personally, I’d look at those over jar babies any day.

Nice article – its good to hear the experience of other designers who have started up. Myself and partner have just made it through our first year, i can see some parallels so comforting to get a solid view point

Thanks for sharing this post about the Jan font. I love the typography of how the letters are formed. Also, it makes me happy to hear that numerous versions were created. As a designer, it is irritating when you want …

I love how much people are actually just making the things they discuss over coffee rather than just going oh that would be a good idea – such a lovely product really well executed!
