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.

Interview: Erik Spiekermann

In our last interview from OFFF 2011 in Barcelona we chat with type designer Erik Spiekermann about snot rags, brain surgery and remembering jokes.

For those of you who don’t know about Mr. Spiekermann… and I doubt there are many of you that don’t… here’s a quick biography.

Erik Spiekermann, born 1947, studied History of Art and English in Berlin. Some of the typefaces he designed include FF Meta, FF MetaSerif, ITC Officina and many corporate typefaces.

He was founder (1979) of MetaDesign, Germany’s largest design firm with offices in Berlin, London and San Francisco. Projects included corporate design programmes for Audi, Skoda, Volkswagen, Lexus, Heidelberg Printing and way­finding projects like Berlin Transit, Düsseldorf Airport and many others.

In 1988 he started FontShop, a company for production and distribution of electronic fonts. In 2001 he left MetaDesign and is now a partner in Edenspiekermann with offices in Amsterdam, Berlin, London and San Francisco. (Source: FontFont)

  3. Yes indeed! Such an easy person to interview :)

    This is the last interview in the OFFF Series. The Brosmind interview wasn’t shot at OFFF and represents where I would like us to take the FFF Interviews in the future. So it felt like we should release it as a start to a new series.

  25. I hate to say it but… you could at least have done Erik the service of using proper apostrophe marks instead of feet marks. You know he’d spot that straight away if he sees this!

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!

It is true though, anyone from any creative art discipline can be a designer. But it’s the passion and the drive that creates the design. There’s a line between master and pupil, all designers are pupils. But it is the …
