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.

Degree show report – Leeds Met Graphic Arts & Design

 

A couple of FFFers popped along to check out Leeds Met’s BA Graphic Art and Design degree show last week.

It’s quite an unusual course in that it’s a lot broader and more arts-based than most graphics courses in the UK. While this meant a lot of the work wasn’t addressing a brief as clearly as you’d see in some degree shows, there was a very strong focus on craftsmanship and finish on show there, especially in typography, illustration and photography.

A small selection of student work is below, the rest of it can be seen at the degree show (that runs until 4pm this friday) or on the course’s portfolio website.

  1. Either it’s a complete and utter coincidence or Leon-Anthony Smith has heavily plagiarized my work….

  3. The tampax packaging is just great. Wouldn’t work at all in the real world because the big gushers would be embarrassed, but it works great in my world.

  5. Great stuff here.
    Interesting to see that Leon-Anthony Smith’s idea has
    been done a few years before though… (By ex-falmouth student Sam Mitchell)

  11. Leeds Met runs a great degree course run by passionate and caring tutors who allow the students the freedom to express themselves while still keeping one eye on the real world… Producing thinkers, first and foremost.

    That’s all evident in this selection of work and it looks like the course continues to grow in stature year on year, thanks for the post.

  13. Yeah that Leon-Anthony Smith has completely ripped off the durex ‘love is blind’ campaign by Sam Mitchell.

  15. Steady on with the “rip off” calls – with a concept like this there’s a chance they got to the same idea without having seen the original. I’m not saying it’s not, I’m just not saying it is either.

  17. Ok, coincidence or ‘heavily plagurized’ its a difficult thing to call…

  19. The design process can often produce simultaneous solutions that are based on the same core idea. I’d have given this one the benefit of the doubt if the tagline ‘love is blind’ wasn’t exactly the same on both designs.

  21. Why would you not google your proposition to see if it’s already been used and too strongly associated with something else? Sure it could be coincidence, but whether or not it is plagiarised, it’s still someone else’s IP.

  23. Taking someone else’s work or idea and passing it off as your own is disgusting.

    I personally find it very hard to believe that the same four executions would be innocently reproduced with exactly the same tagline. It only takes a minute on Google to check that you have an original concept.

    Plagiarism seems to be a growing problem, a number of entries (and winners) in this year’s Chip Shop Awards also look to be direct lifts of previous work. Do designers not realise that copied work is easy to spot?

Nice little project – well executed. I like these little promo pieces, but they do take up space and become forgotten about over time. Got loads from GF Smith!! Would be nice to see something that could be more of …
