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.

  1. So simple, yet so much personality in those little guys.

  3. so much fun and simple concept, goes to show how so little information can make characters with big personalities.

  5. Everything down to the peeping round the corner of the type is spot on, key thing is – it made me smile and think ‘I’m gonna remember this brand’.
    Nice work.

  7. Let me say upfront that I’m a huge fan of Build. I’d be interested to know more about the brief and other background information around this project, just to be able to cast my outsider’s opinion of the end result with more of an understanding. I know nothing of Ukrainie markets, but my first impressions based purely on aesthetic merit, are that it’s very weak – and to some degree actually quite creepy. There I said it.

  9. Agree with Graeme, surely too creepy for the kids?

  11. I was brought up with Ren & Stimpy, Ahhhh Real Monsters, Trap Door etc which were all pretty weird – I don’t think weird for kids is bad thing as it stimulates the imagination – a good example of this today is Yo Gabba Gabba. I personally think the stranger the better and Im a big fan of this rebrand – well done Build and the client for going for something that is a bit alternative and has a nice idea – in a world of TV rebrands today that seems to be all about boring generic 3D shapes.

  13. Very appropriate header on this site to oversee this discussion! @Graeme @Samuel I wondered that too briefly and then remembered what kids like and what we think kids would like are quite different. This work would sit nicely inside an issue of Anorak magazine and that for me is the yardstick by which successful and appropriate work for kids is measured in my opinion.

  15. Love the characters and the playfulness they bring to the idents. Very well executed as usual Mr Place & Co.

    I don’t think they are creepy at all. Just a sense on intrigue to ‘what are they going to do next?’.

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 troublesome conundrum Jack. Having been through a similar exercise many moons ago with LongLunch, trying to get a logo for your not-for-profit venture with another bunch of creatives is a long road. Maybe consider how you might tackle this …

Brian Copeland on Logogate

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, …
