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.

  3. Smart, functional, a lot to take in. I like the ‘find out more’ page with demo’s of each section. Good to see they keep progressing – doesn’t seem like long since the last re-jig? Any info on who’s behind it this time?

  5. I like the general idea but it feels busy or messy as Samuel put it. It’s as if the project has been lead by a negative space fearing marketing person who demands everything be “above the fold” and less scrolling.

    But like I say the idea is there we’ll see how things go.

  9. Seems like its made for touch screens and such. Not sure it’s cool to browser around using a “regular” mouse keyboard screen combo.
    Then again i dont have a tablet to try it so this is speculative.

    Anyone with a tablet around ? xD

  11. Pretty nice aside from the huge Arial. The bigger it gets, the uglier it gets.

    You’re right it fits (almost) perfectly on an iPad screen and seems to suit the device better than a large display.

  15. Why don’t they have a collated design for all of their platforms so there is fluid navigation throughout? Seems obvious, but in reality must be a nightmare to conduct.

  17. …not what I’m seeing. All I get is the insanely ugly current page.

    from the thumbnail you provide, I think it looks quite good.

  19. The old website was trying to do too much. Whereas the beta offers a more discovery led approach, whilst making the content easily digestible and engaging.

  21. I don’t think it works. I was relatively impressed when I first visited the site, but I found myself just playing with stuff rather than engaging with content. There is not enough definition between article types within the image laden scrolling panel and find the faded areas to the left and right to be distracting.

    The previous iteration of the BBC site did a great job at seperating out content types – news, entertainment, sport etc but this new beta version just seems to lump everything together. In addition the images dominate over the text headlines, but sadly the images dont explain enough about each story.

    And the arrows are far too big.

  23. I like the principle but the eye gets lost in it. TBH I think it is missing a few gradients or dropshadows! I normally would never say that but it all feels a bit flat – not much depth to it so you don’t get guided aroud the page.
