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.

Mid-Century Ads

Mad Men has left our screens for another year – for the rest of 2012 you’ll have to get your tailoring, interior design and receding hairline porn elsewhere. As for the actual advertising, fear not: as a nice change from squinting to make out what artwork Peggy has pinned to her wall, you can just open up Taschen’s rather wonderful Mid-Century Ads: Advertising from the Mad Men Era.

This hefty double volume contains an away of print advertising from the 50s and 60s, with an introduction by the ever-knowledgable Steven Heller. It’s the sort of thing you’ll be dragging off your shelf time and again for reference. So much of it is alien to design now – colours just looked different back then for some reason, and there’s so much copy! – that a flick through every now and then is useful for giving you a different perspective on a project.

It’s a shame that Taschen have only gone after the Mad Men pound, as volumes dedicated to advertising from earlier and later decades would be equally fascinating (you could fill the 80s volume with nothing but cigarette adverts and it’s be incredible), but that’s a minor quibble. Get this on your shelf.

Trebleseven Design

Remember Trebleseven’s rather spiffing Socceraid World Cup posters from the Summer? Well they’re back with another piece of wall-candy, this time in the form of a colourful and lovely calendar, simply called Hello 2011. Perfect for brightening up that drab studio wall. Or radiator.

(Going off on a bit of a tangent/rant, to all printers/studios/agencies out there who want to send out promotional calendars and diaries: send them now or don’t send them at all. Receiving an unsolicited diary in the middle of February is quite useless and simply suggests that you’re incapable of delivering anything on time. It’s quite annoying.)

Jamie Smith on The Recorder: Issue 1

Can’t wait to get my hands on this first issue of The Recorder by Luke Tonge. Looks amazing. A real keeper and collectable. Be sure to get a copy before first edition runs out.
