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.

I want this book and so will you. Here is a sneak peek at some beautiful paintings to be featured in painter Mark Whalen‘s first  book: Human Development, to be released this September by ZERO+ Publishing. It will be printed in a limited edition run of 1000 with 90 colored plates. I have a sneaking suspicion that these won’t last long, so get yours while you still can.

Here is a bit about the book:

“MARK WHALEN: HUMAN DEVELOPMENT examines the world of artist Mark Whalen (AKA Kill Pixie), who explores the human condition through his stunning body of work. Using a tightly controlled painting technique, Whalen expresses satirical social narratives through universal situations. Strange hooded characters caught in the throes of ambiguous action, shimmering trees, geometric patterns, architectural anomalies and intricate textural beads of color collide in kaleidoscopic intensity, at once immaculately composed and careening out of control. Whalen uses sly oppositions to reflect life’s puzzling duality; evoking dark humor through luminous color, chaos through controlled detail, the sublime through the specific. Whalen employs a seductive synesthesia that sheds new light on humanity: which, like his works, is both erotic and oppressive, vibrant and reclusive, beautiful and uncanny.”

To coincide with Mark’s book release he will be having a show at Merry Karnowsky Gallery in LA from September 3 – October 1, 2011. If you are in the LA area (I envy you) the opening reception is Saturday, September 10, 8-11pm. Here is a little preview video for the show. I can’t wait to see the video in it’s entirety! Cheers!
