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.

Sainsbury’s Design Studio 1962-77

It always struck me that a good indicator of the general public’s awareness and appreciation of design could be judged by product packaging on supermarket shelves. Perhaps an unexpected source of good graphic design – the Sainsbury Supermarket’s in-house design team (which launched in 1963) took design very seriously during the 60’s and 70’s. They produced some truly fantastic packaging solutions for everyday products using bold geometric shape and colour. Here are a few examples but you can see more at the Museum of London Docklands. There is also a book available – Own Label: Sainsbury ‘s Design Studio, 1962-1977, by Jonny Trunk by Fuel (found at the Guardian)

  1. Why can’t all packaging be like this?

  7. I saw that top image and thought ‘Wow, that must be the new packaging for their cat food, how nice.’

  9. The Golden Age. So much better than the majority of current packaging, although there is still some good stuff about – I like the simplicity of Sainsbury’s herbs and spices and a lot of Waitrose packaging is very elegant.

    None of it matches this though.

  11. Remarkable. I couldn’t believe this when I saw your site. I designed the Sainsbury’s pet food packs. The cats, I thin there were three cat food tins, were drawn using photos of my own cats and the dog belonged to Peter Dixon, my head of design at JS. It was a really happy time in my life – just starting out on a design career that led me to setting up Design Bridge and, latterly WMH.

  13. @Richard, thanks so much for commenting! Many of us bought this book and love its aesthetic – so it’s fascinating to gain a bit of an insiders viewpoint. If you have any more stories to share we’d love to hear them!

    For any of our readers interested these comments are great too:

Without a doubt my favourite is the otter. They hold hands to avoid floating away from each other and mother otters fluff up their babies by blowing air into their fur so that they float meaning the mums can swim …
