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.

CONTAINER

CONTAINER is a new publication about the nature and culture of objects, published and produced by ARTOMATIC and manufactured in the UK. Each issue comprises a collection of original physical items, each created exclusively and specifically for each edition by a number of contributors. The objects are gathered together in a container, which is itself specific to the individual edition. Subsequent editions will have different themes and different contributors.

Tim Milne is the brains behind the operation and explains his thinking:

Magazines have long fascinated me and there’s no shortage of publications capable of identifying and attracting the most obscure audiences. Yet, the fluid notion of a magazine—changing content, different contributors—seems at odds with the restrictive fixed format of a printed book. While various attempts have been made to deviate from this—notably Aspen, Visionnaire, Gasbook, The Thing Quarterley and fashion titles like Centrefold—the vast majority conform rigidly to bound pages.

The original meaning of the word magazine means storehouse—a place to keep things in. So, it seems—to me—obvious that a collection of three dimensional objects, varying in size, shape, format, materials and construction might be a better—or at least different—way of expressing the fluid nature and model of a published magazine.

The first edition, CONTAINER #1: Hot&Cold features objects from the following contributors:

Accept & Proceed | James Bridle | Daniel Eatock | Malcolm Garrett | David Hieatt | Leila Johnston | Mother | Rebecca and Mike | Nic Roope & Violetta Boxill | John V Willshire

CONTAINER #1:Hot&Cold will be produced as a limited edition of 200 and will be available to buy exclusively here from 2 July 2013. Understandably it will not be a pocket money purchase (think 3 figures) even so Issue 1 is expected to sell out quite quickly – but anyone who registers on the site will get first dibs when they go on sale.

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 …
