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.

Christopher Doyle Identity Guidelines 2008

Yesterday I was shown this piece of self promotion from Christopher Doyle, definitely one of those “I wish I thought of that moments”. Don’t know if I’d have stripped to my pants right enough.

  35. Excellent, and even if it is influenced by the Lief Parsons piece, imitation is the greatest form of flattery.
    Hats off (IF his guide lines allow the use of Hats?) to him and Lief for making themselves stand out in the crowd.
    Wish I had thought of the idea!

  37. This is a great example of the use of text in photography, I didn\’t overpower the content but enhances it. I love the play contradictions. Interesting that many people assume that something physical can define their \"identity.\" The essence of who you are can\’t possibly dwell there.

Very nice work. Been a long time admirer of Iain’s work… I just didn’t know it was him that did it!

So, when talking about originality, why do people still use those popular artist quotes about art/idea theft? Just as unoriginal, just as idiotic. No wonder some of them defend such behaviour when all they do is ‘copy/paste’ themselves, think of …

What you are failing to understand about the current design society where young designers are being pressured to be noticed by their skills in software and “finish” not so much on their conceptual outcome.

But you need to understand as you …

“undeniable skill”? Everyone can download a free 3d model, buy or download a ready 3d light/vray/render studio and hit “render”. That’s not a skill imo. :)
