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.

Scotland Can Make It (SCMI)

Daniel from Graphical House got in touch to tell us about the new Scotland Can Make It initiative which they have designed the identity and website for. Initiated by Creative Scotland and inspired by London 2012 and Glasgow 2014, Scotland Can Make It! aims to celebrate Scottish creativity and stimulate the relationship between the country’s creative and manufacturing sectors. Against the backdrop of these two major sporting events, Scotland Can Make It! will present six new, limited edition souvenirs, designed and manufactured entirely in Scotland and leaving a lasting material legacy from Scotland’s dynamic and imaginative cultural landscape.

The project has been designed to enable relationships and collaborations between Scotland’s creative practitioners and our manufacturing industries. As the name suggests, all the souvenirs will be produced in Scotland and applicants are asked to suggest a manufacturing company they could work with. The six winning entrants will each work closely with Panel on the research and development of their designs. Each successful commission will receive a £1000 fee and a maximum budget of around £2000 will be allocated to the development and production of each souvenir prototype.

Scotland Can Make It! is not just open to designers and makers: music, textiles, accessories, books, stationery, clothing, prints and homewares are amongst the types of work the organisers would be interested in seeing submissions for, and proposals for inter-disciplinary collaborations involving writers, musicians, visual artists and designers are particularly welcome. Application packs can be downloaded at www.scotlandcanmakeit.com from Monday 6 June 2011, when the project will formally launch. Submissions are invited from established and emerging creative practitioners and will be judged by a panel of creative practitioners and industry experts, including current Turner Prize nominee Martin Boyce, leading design retailer Sheridan Coakley, Rob Young (Editor-at-large, The Wire), Christina Jansen (Curator, The Scottish Gallery), and Creative Scotland’s Leonie Bell (Creative Programmer: London 2012 and Glasgow 2014). All submissions must be received by 5pm on Monday 25 July.

In 2012, an exhibition featuring the souvenir prototypes and a behind-the-scenes look at all the design and manufacturing processes involved to date will tour Scotland.

  3. I think it’s a nice enough idea but unless the winning entrants get a percentage from the profits of the sale of their memorabilia then it’s pretty much exploitation for £1000.00 is it not.

    Be interested to find out if that was the case, looking at the site it doesn’t seem like it.

Beautiful work!

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 …

Stunning design and simply lines. Great stuff.
