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.

  1. Yeah, the use of Gothic Serif bold with that rich 3D style definitely has a similar flavour to the excellent Serial Cut.

    Also, I know how useful Behance can be, but I do much prefer to see work on the illustrator’s own site.

  3. I can’t understand how this guy gets so much exposure, all he does is copying other people’s styles, been aware of him for quite some time and he got to be known for ripping other designer’s pieces, eventually he deleted them from his portfolio and focused on the 3D but he keeps working under the same logic: cheap copies of excellent illustrations. From all the places I follow I wouldn’t expect FFF to feature him.

  5. Interesting opinions Peter – here at FFF we don’t spend hours researching the background of every person we feature – so we have to take much on trust. That said, comments are here for the masses to voice their opinion and the truth will usually come out. Peter Tarka, whether his work is wholly original or not, has undeniable skill and level of finish. Thanks for commenting! Stick with us?

  9. Just like Peter said – it’s a copy of a copy of a copy… This guy’s the result of Behance continuing to support the lack of originality, encouraging young folks to do that just to get the feature. Someone tries too hard here. Too bad that most of the people won’t know that.

  11. Yes, like Teb said, it’s almost a rip-off of the excellent work made by Plenty studio, the first time I saw his work I thought it was Plenty. It’s rare for a copy-cat to get this much exposure, there’s zero originality on his portfolio and I can almost pinpoint all the pieces from which he did get his inspiration from.

  13. “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. :)

  15. 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 give credit to this designer for his skills that most of these objects are stock objects not created by him but by such other 3D designers selling their work on like websites 3D Turbosquid.
    Where you can download and just move objects around with copied composition from other designers. Where Serial Cut actually create their own custom objects and materials and if you watched Serial Cuts lectures and see their process there is a geniune aesthetics not a pastiche.

    However we as designers need to accept that the younger generation of design is a pastiche copying and older generation who also are conducting the same pastiche outcome from histroical artwork. Young designers are trying to get exposure and fame with an outcome of money or a successful job to get on more excited projects linked towards design and copying visuals is working for but their is a lack of knowledge about design, that is not coming through with young designers.

    Maybe we are so bitter because we are the designers who aren’t producing nothing where as Peter is and getting exposed for by well known design names in society showing his portfolio.

    “Those who do not want to imitate anything, produce nothing.”

  17. 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 your own opinion for once, even if it’s terribly bad.
