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.

Glasgow Press

Fellow FFF’r Greig Anderson and I met up with Larry and Dan at the Glasgow Press this morning. They are what you might call an endangered species. They practice the craft of Letterpress, surrounded by their beautifully antiquated Heidelberg presses. Each of these repetitively whoosh and groan as they go about their assigned tasks. These presses are the last of their kind. As Larry says ‘Once they’re gone they’re gone’. The same can be said of the knowledge and craftsmanship that is required to produce letterpress printing.

Having said this there is a fast growing demand for Letterpress and indeed other forms of the more ‘traditional’ printing techniques. (Glasgow Press’ full schedule is proof of this). The niche has become a point of differentiation. An emotive and nostalgic alternative to the digital norm. Something designers commission when they want to create a lasting impression. (pardon the pun)

We’d like to thank Dan and Larry for taking the time to show us around their print studio. It was great to get out of our sterile studio environment and see design in action, at the coal-face so to speak. You can view more of the beautiful work Glasgow Press’ produce on their website  More images on our Flickr stream.



Every now and then you discover something that really stands out – the work of Sonnenzimmer really does – the Chicago based studio of Nick Butcher and Nadine Nakanishi merges backgrounds in typography, printmaking, graphic design and fine art to produce beautifully crafted posters, books, and music packaging for a wide array of clients. They also sell prints at very reasonable prices – find it all here:


Sainsbury’s Design Studio 1962-77

It always struck me that a good indicator of the general public’s awareness and appreciation of design could be judged by product packaging on supermarket shelves. Perhaps an unexpected source of good graphic design – the Sainsbury Supermarket’s in-house design team (which launched in 1963) took design very seriously during the 60’s and 70’s. They produced some truly fantastic packaging solutions for everyday products using bold geometric shape and colour. Here are a few examples but you can see more at the Museum of London Docklands. There is also a book available – Own Label: Sainsbury ‘s Design Studio, 1962-1977, by Jonny Trunk by Fuel (found at the Guardian)

Claiming ownership of a graphic mark that you’ve just produced for shits and giggles and then put online for all the world to access is very naive. If this was the legal standard, no designs would ever be valid again. …
