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.

Colin Bennett

It’s only taken seven years, but at 9am this morning Glasgow-based designer Colin Bennett launched his new site. Believing that “design should communicate, not just decorate” Colin doesn’t have a particular style, preferring to take a fresh approach for each new client.

With well over thirty projects the new portfolio is extremely thorough, and overall, it’s an excellent example client-focused, idea-driven design.

  11. Hey, I like the Scottish Drama booklet, looks amazingly close to Sumo Design’s New Writing North brochure design.

  13. Thanks Graham. Really nice of you to say. I haven’t seen Sumo’s New Writing North booklet so it’ll just be one of those wee co-incidences if it’s at all similar. There’s lots of coloured shape stuff doing the rounds at the moment so it wouldn’t surprise me.

  15. Really lovely work Colin – I must have missed your article the first time around so great to see your stuff. Graham – apart from both being very nice, I can see absolutely no similarities at all between The Scottish Drama brochure and the New Writing North piece?!

  17. @Kat – Colins works are brilliant and I like them very much but can’t help seeing the similarities between this http://www.flickr.com/photos/29770511@N07/2784650944/ and the SD brochure.

  19. @Colin – Love your work. It did remind of Sumo’s NWN work and I’m sorry if my post was accusing you of coping. Sorry.

  21. Thanks Kat.

    Graham – that’s the first time I’ve seen that piece of work. I see what you’re getting at with the whole triangles thing but let’s stop and have a quick reality check here. My SDTN cover is made up of multi-coloured triangles and squares. I have a sneaky suspicion that if you look hard enough you may find other pieces of work that uses triangles and squares too ;o)

    Greig Anderson of Effektive has a lovely piece of work for Boost Agents on his site that looks very similar to my SDTN cover. Greig e-mailed me when I launched my site to let me know of his forthcoming work. Greig hadn’t seen my work and I hadn’t seen his. It was obviously down to complete coincidence – nothing sinister going on at all. Sometimes these things happen in design, especially when it comes down to primary shapes and stuff.

    Thanks for your comments anyway. Really appreciate it.

  23. The triangle is one of the most primitive shapes known to mankind. It\’s quite common to see triangles used as patterns or primary design elements across various mediums. I\’ve come across a vast amount of work that use the shape well.

    Nice body of work Colin.

  25. Nicely handled Colin, your considered (design) approach clearly extends to your courtesy in dealing with people, which speaks volumes. To suggest that those 2 pieces of work are amazingly similar seems very strange as I’m often the first to assume plagiarism and in my eyes its not even close. Each to their own I guess :)

  27. Lovely clean work, especially the SDTN stuff.

    Although I hate to break it to you but I used triangles on something I designed a few years ago so clearly you (and Sumo for that matter) are copying me. Lawsuit imminent!

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 …

“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. :)
