FormFiftyFive

Design inspiration from around the world.

What the FFF?

Founded in 2007 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.

Google Fonts

The new Google Fonts makes it easier than ever to browse open source fonts and learn more about the people behind them. Using the Material Design framework, Google created a design that scales across different screen sizes and devices, and updated the entire of the site, from the overall interactivity all the way down to the logo design. Nicely done!

Peter & Paul: Huddersfield University

This new campaign for Huddersfield University’s open days by Peter & Paul caught my last week. We asked Lee Davis (creative director at Peter & Paul) to tell us a bit more about the project.

“Our first port of call was to look at all those bits of work you see for Universities which have a photo of a student on campus and the words Tomorrow, Future, Potential or Professionals in them, and ask ‘can we try and say something different?’

The idea arrived that, for all this talk of the future, it’s now which defines what you do next and the experiences you get whilst at University start the journey. So rather than focusing on tomorrow all the time we wanted to celebrate today (especially given the campaign was geared towards getting bums on seats at the Open Days). Hence the campaign idea that ‘Everything Starts Now’.

We put a number of ideas to client as to how we could articulate that (I think there were about 8 or 9 in all… one of which involved staging a massive race… that didn’t happen). The winning concept was one where we take existing students, ask them to make an exhaustive list of everything they’ve done since being at Huddersfield from joining table top gaming clubs to designing costumes to traveling and used that as the basis of a brief for our illustrators.

Brosmind, Jamie Cullen and Matt Johnstone were chosen because we really like them and they have quite differing styles.

We made it our mission to let the illustrators do their thing. The client totally bought into that and were amazing about it: ‘Include some Huddersfield centric stuff and we’ll trust you’ they pretty much said (I’m paraphrasing).

The finished article is popping up all over Yorkshire and Manchester with digital moving advertising, online and print. The first 30 second film has been produced with our good friend Joe Brooks for Marthe with the other two to land in the next month or two.

We art directed photography with Nick Eagle who took about 1500 shots for the films. It’s been emotional.”

Tim Smith

We have all (well most of us) been there, the thankless task of trying to design your own logo. So many possibilities. So many options. Where do you start…

Designer & Illustrator Tim Smith found himself at the same crossroads and couldn’t decide on what logo to use on his new website. So, what he did instead, was approach his favourite designers, artists and illustrators out there to do a version of his logo! Each week he’ll be featuring a different logo by a different guest artist.

So far he managed to involve: – Mr Bingo – Pete Fowler – Olly Gibbs – Jean Jullien – Annie Rickard Straus – Alex Griendling – Stanley Chow

With more to come.

Nerdo — Beer by Charles Bukowski

Lorenzo at Nerdo got in touch about their latest animation entitled ‘BEER’. An interpretation of the poetry of Charles Bukowski.

“The composition is a manifesto of the author’s way of life, this is why we decided to go inside the author’s mind, and it is not a safe journey. A brain solo without filter, a tale of ordinary madness, showing how much loneliness and decadence can be hidden inside a genius mind.”

I love it!

Thanks for sharing this post about the Jan font. I love the typography of how the letters are formed. Also, it makes me happy to hear that numerous versions were created. As a designer, it is irritating when you want …
