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.

Unit Editions – Herb Lubalin

We post regularly about Unit Editions (the publishing collaboration between Tony Brook and Adrian Shaughnessy) because we’re huge fans of their books. I’m so excited about their latest piece that I can’t wait until its out to post this (a review upon release will follow). The subject of the book is Herb Lubalin – one of the most loved, influential and renowned American graphic designers – who up till now has been poorly represented in print.

At close to 500 pages this hardback tome is not for the faint-hearted, but it surely deserves a spot on every studio / designers shelf (alongside Bass, RandDorfsmanGlaser).

Treat yourself – pre-order now and save yourself a tenner.

Roll on August!

 

This meticulously researched book offers a complete career overview of Lubalin, beginning with his early days as one of the original Mad Men in the New York advertising world of the 50s and 60s, and continuing into the years of his greatest achievements as one of the world’s most influential typographers and graphic designers.

I’m a creative freelance UX UI digital designer always looking for new opportunities, see my work http://www.richard-hill.org.uk

Richard Hill on Freelance Digital Designer

Loved the concept but the execution let it down. Those issues, in my opinion, are with navigating the UI and the content being in uppercase and the graphs were unreadable.

Graham on In Pieces

Very nice!
