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.

Midnight Marauder

The Midnight Marauder is a Los Angeles based designer and art director. He produces the most stunning film posters and Criterion DVD covers – prints soon to be available. His Prometheus series has been doing the rounds, and rightly so.

Once a film is out in the public domain there are many more assets to design with than available for promotion at time of release, as evident in some of the montage designs, but all his pieces show a great eye for composition and tone. More on his tumblr here.

  1. The Prometheus series is pretty epic!

  3. I’ve got to be honest – not really feeling/seeing the point of these.

    It could be interesting if it was historic/classic movies being designed in a contemporary way or illustrated, but don’t see any value in redesigning recent movies using a collection of screenshots.

  5. @Jack, Fair enough. I’m not sure if there needs to be a point? I see them as graphic art (for want of a better phrase) – packaging to please the collector not the marketing dept. I definitely see more point in the exercise when the films originally had crap packaging.

    “The Criterion Collection is dedicated to gathering the greatest films from around the world and publishing them in editions of the highest technical quality” which always includes revisiting the packaging – a tempting opportunity for most designers i’d think.

  9. Have to say I agree with Jack, not really feeling it. Some of them are nice but I think it would be better to limit what’s on the site. The first Raging Bull poster’s nice but then it goes into overkill with all the variations. I like the Criterion collection though, hadn’t heard of it before so good to get an introduction to that.

    @Luke, surely at the end of the day the marketing department are just trying to please the collector, the Criterion collection’s surely a good example of that.

  11. @Adrian as much as I’m sure they’d love to only consider the end consumer most marketing dept’s are subject to pressure from execs who will have their own boxes to tick – especially when its a big blockbuster release. I think the Criterion collection enjoys a little more creative freedom as many of those constraints won’t be placed on them.

  13. Lets not confuse graphic art with good old problem solving design, I think the point is he doesn’t have to work to a brief and answer to a marketing dept or anyone else, leaving him free to create work that’s purely for aesthetic pleasure.

    I agree some are stronger than others but that’s ok isn’t it, no reason not to include them on his own blog.

  15. The Kids poster uses the very same kissing image from Soft Metals self titled album. Cropped identically and exactly the same frame. Whats up with that?

To my mind you should keep it, because they are not 100% similar. In this case all other brands, which have similar logos, for example circles, or brands like Airbnb, should stop using their brands. You have wrote about your …

A logo is not art*, it’s a signifier of a service or thing (person, place company etc). In current identity fashion simpler is better, increasing the probability that multiple designers will settle on similar images. If you want exclusive ownership, …
