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.

Havana Club Inspired Ingenuity

The project is a competition that Havana Club are running based on the theme of ‘Inspired Ingenuity’; a reference to the spirit of the people of Havana, who pride themselves on their ability to create what they need from what they have. The competition is taking place over the first six months of 2011, challenging artists, musicians and other creative talents to takes the everyday and turn it into something special. A winner will be picked each month, and the final winner will win a trip to Cuba. The project is being run through the Havana Club Facebook page
To help promote the competition, graphic design studio Intercity commissioned three artists to create a piece of work that takes the everyday and turns it into something special.
Title: SNEAKER SPEAKERS
Artist: NASH
Sneaker customiser Nash responsed to the brief by transforming a pair of all-white Nike Air Force 1’s into a fully functional set of ‘Sneaker Speakers’. Nash was a perfect choice for as we see sneaker customisation as
its own form of Inspired Ingenuity. Read an interview with Nash here.
Title: INGREDIENTS
Artist: CEMAL OKTEN
Symbolising Cuba’s love of music, product designer Cemal Okten has used everyday objects to create something greater than the sum of its parts. The fully functional headphones are made from a tin can, a coat hanger, a piece of rope and two corks.
Title: PICNIC TABLE
Founded by Jurjen Semeijn, Amsterdam-based I Have Pop™ is known for its innovative ideas and multi-dimensional projects. For this street art installation they appropriated the fences from a local roadworks site and constructed a picnic table in the park. See the video of the I Have Pop™ piece here.
The Identity:
Intercity also created the Inspired Ingenuity logo, using objects from around the studio including a ring-pull, polystyrene packaging, a fuse, a paperclip and a coat-hanger.

Beautiful work!

Julius on From Austria to NYC

Think the title might’ve been misinterpreted. For “shit” read “stuff” or “things” maybe?

Phil Howard on Shit showreels say

This is really good, very funny, especially the ‘to fast to appreciate it…’ bit! I would slightly agree with Jim though. These are all just a collection of treatments/styles and they do work within various contexts. It’s probably a bit …

Chris on Shit showreels say

So watch constitutes ‘not Shit’ exactly? You can’t craft a statement as confident and entertaining as this without so much as a hint of a retort, surely? The fact is that some of these tricks actually do work in certain …

Jim on Shit showreels say

Stunning design and simply lines. Great stuff.
