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.

  3. Outstanding. Beautifully considered idea-driven design. It’s what it’s all about. Leaf Street is one of my favourite identities of all time. Flawless.

    For me, Oliver’s portfolio is what graphic design is all about. Intelligent visual communication. Over the past 4-5 years I’ve been increasingly worried by the type of work young designers are showing me in their folios. Students are being slightly brainwashed by design blogs to believe that ‘design craft’ and ‘finish’ is what graphic design is all about. It can be, but visual communication is also about ideas and storytelling.

    I reviewed about eight portfolios at the AIGA portfolio day in San Francisco a few weeks ago and was surprised by the lack of ideas in young designers’ books. A fancy print spec, foil or duplex is not an idea – it’s just ‘finish’.

    Remember, there’s more to graphic design than the work featured on September Industry and Visuelle. Sure, I love that stuff as much as the next person, but quite often it’s just design for the sake of design. Young designers should remember to switch on their brains once in a while and really try to balance their ‘sexy’ books with some thinking.

    Oliver’s work and the work of The Chase in general is a perfect reference for the type of design I’m referring to. Wonderful, inspiring stuff.

  5. Interbrand have bagged themselves a gem. In awe of this work. The ideas and wit demonstrated are the best I’ve seen in a long while. Brilliant.

  7. HI Guys, I have just stumbled across this. Thanks for all the flattering comments. I’ve been very luck to work on some great projects over the years. Half the time it’s about getting the right client. There’s still quite a bit more work I need to put up on my website so please come back at some point.

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 …

What you are failing to understand about the current design society where young designers are being pressured to be noticed by their skills in software and “finish” not so much on their conceptual outcome.

But you need to understand as you …

“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. :)
