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.

Glasgow 2014 Pictograms

With three years to go until the event, yesterday saw the unveiling of the much anticipated 2014 Commonwealth Games pictograms, created by Tangent. FFF can also now reveal the first public viewing of the designs in motion.

Using elements of the games identity – designed by Marque in 2010 – the pictograms use the 2014 logo’s concentric rings as the foundation from which to build the set. This use of the geometric shapes creates a flexible base, allowing enough leeway to create the range of physical movement required to represent 17 different events.

  1. Inevitably I think some of these are better than others – but overall an excellent set… the more I look at them the better they get! Ping pong and wrestlers are definite faves.

  3. Any set will inevitably be judged against Otl Aicher’s 1972 masterclass in simplicity, but these tick all the right boxes for me. A lovely set of pictograms that references the overall brand, clearly communicates each sport, and individually they look poised and energetic. Thumbs up from me.

  5. Interesting style. I’ve never seen anything quite like this.

  7. Lovely set of icons for the Glasgow Commonwealth Games! Serves the identity by Marque justice.

    Really like the swimming, running, gymnastics and hockey. Agree with Tom on the energy captured in each one.

    Least favourites would be netball. wrestling, martial arts (these two look too similar – a high kick would have done for the martial arts)

    Nice contrast between the primary and secondary information within the icons too (bike, balls, second person etc…)

  9. Nice set, and do bear comparison with Munich 1972. I like the bike, clearly inspired by Chris Hoy’s massive thighs :)

  11. I think these kick off where SomeOne’s designs for the London 2012 Sports Pictograms.

    They take the ‘dynamic’ approach like SomeOne did too.

    I wonder is there are a set of ‘small size’ applications. SomeOne did a whole related set for these.

    I prefer SomeOne’s set. But admire the ambition behind these.

What can I say ….nice mock-up and good site. Very inspirational post…

biju on Bienal

That is a beautiful project, I looked through her behance portfolio and it was brilliant stuff, so much detail.

Naeem on Barbara Bernát: Hungarian paper money

Looks good to me – different style and layout than a lot of the similar type sites out there

Jack Carpenter on Design By Day

Not showing too well on my 13 inch macbook but still looks great. Love designers being brave with concepts. Just question the usability with my UX head on

Jack Carpenter on Polkaouistiti Collective

Looks grand. But am I being stupid and missing a link to the book/a shop or must use my fingers to type the words old-stylee?

richpeacock on Wally Olins

Great guys. Been to a few of their talks and bought pretty much every book!..

But they look a bit like Phil & Grant in the picture above. ;)
