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.

Jamie Wieck: 50 things

Jamie Wieck has compiled a list of 50 things graphic design students should know, based on his own experiences and those of his friends & colleagues. There’s some really useful advice in this article, some of quite obvious but all of it insightful.

I’ve picked out 3 of my favourites to get you started…

2. There is always someone better.
Regardless of how good you are, there will always be someone better. It’s surprisingly easy to waste time worrying about this. #the50

15. Do as many internships as you can stand.
Internships are a financial burden, but they are vital. They let you scope out the industry and find the roles that suit you best. #the50

44. If you’re going to fail, fail well.
Being ambitious means you have to take on things you think you can’t do. Failures are unfortunate, but they are sometimes necessary. #the50

  1. No 51. Try to avoid plagarising Paul Arden.

  3. That’s a bit snide John. There’s a whole bunch of great advice for designers of all levels, I feel like Jamie should be congratulated for putting the time and effort in to help people out. Lord knows I could’ve used some of that advice when I graduated (and could probably do with some of it still now).

    Honestly, it’s you can’t have anything published on a blog these days without someone crying ‘rip off’. If you think you can do it better, please go ahead. If you’ve nothing constructive or useful to say why say anything at all.

  5. Well said Ben. People are always so quick to jump on the negative.

  7. Great collection of good advice. Each one is nice and short too.

Beautifully designed book. I read it too and while I’m also not the target audience, I enjoyed it nonetheless. She has a tone of voice in her writing that is hard not to like.

Paul is Mr Paper all right, what he doesn’t know about GF Smith’s ranges you could write on the back of a postage stamp. I have known Paul for many years and his enthusiasm and passion for the company he …

Very nice print. Kinda reminds me of the NVA Speed of Light logo which I also really liked.
