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.

Typo London

We were lucky to attend Typo12 London, watching some of the big names in our industry present to an audience of designers and students on the loose theme of ‘Social’. Among the 30+ speakers packed into two days, were A Practice for Everyday Life (APFEL), book designer Irma Boom, illustrator/designer/film-maker Kate Moross, Henrik Kubel of A2/SW/HK and my personal design hero Vaughan Oliver. Overall it was insightful, humbling, though-provoking and humorous. We will be posting more detailed write-ups on some of these great talks in the coming days, for those who didn’t make it to the conference. But in the mean time, there were some common conceptual themes that emerged across the board, including:

  • Being obsessed by what you do
  • The usefulness of knowing what’s gone before, and access to this knowledge
  • Social & cultural roles/responsibilities of the designer
  • Having the courage of your convictions
  • Serendipity, the importance of collaboration and building relationships, and having a strong support network
  • Being able to let your work go
  • The impact of the social and cultural climate in which you grow up
  • The studio as a safe place in which to play and the value of embracing failure
  • Connecting with content.

 

Plus some aesthetic trends, some of which you may have already noted:

  • DIY
  • Data as image
  • The rise of Riso.


Look out for further posts on Typo12 very soon.

Chatter

I’m a wolves fan and this has always bugged me. The hexagon gets in the way of the attitude the ‘wolf’ could have if it didn’t have to compete with such a strong shape and thick outer line… pedantic maybe …

Roberto D'Andria on Grafiky

Wonderful!

Jared G on Nick Deakin: Sheffield Children’s Hospital

Looks nice. Reminds me of the Church of London’s one-off ‘Good Times’ newspaper project.

Matt on The Five to Nine

Good. But not as good as the first.

Michael Thomason on Axis Animation – Gab Talk

Its eerly similar to the simbol on the artifact in quartermass and the pit
