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.

All Sorts

Still looking for nice, designery Xmas presents? Well look no more. ‘All Sorts’ is a limited edition letterpress book created by ‘gridula’ who is part of ‘The Print Project’ — a letterpress printing collective based in Bradford, West Yorkshire.

A sort in letterpress printing is an individual letter or character. ‘All Sorts’ is a pun on this. As each ‘Sort’ (or person) in the book is created out of lead or wooden sorts. Designed, set and printed by hand this is a lovely little book. You can get hold of it here.

Secret 7″

Design agency Music in collaboration with Universal Music have joined up for a charity project in aid of the Teenage Cancer Trust called Secret 7″. The aim of the project is to raise awareness and funds for the Teenage Cancer Trust through the exhibition and sale of 700 limited edition vinyls each housed in a one off, original sleeve designed by a vast array of designers, illustrators, celebrities, musicians and kids from the Teenage Cancer Trust. 7 current recording artists  have each pressed 100 limited edition  7″ vinyls of one of their own songs and it’s these songs which will be the inspiration for the sleeve art.

Part of the project was to hold a competition through online marketing agency Talenthouse, where 1000′s of people submitted sleeve designs for 1 or more of the 7 tracks.  50 designs for each track were picked from all the entries by the artist themselves and the chosen designs will be on display and for sale at the exhibition. The remaining 50 sleeves for each track are being designed by the likes of Mr Bingo, Ben Lamb, Si Scott, Deanna Halsall, Pete Fowler, Jody Barton, Jeffery Bowman, Inky, Johanna Basford, Shaw & Shaw and various artists from Hadsome Frank Illustration, CIA, Heart Illustration to name but a few.

The total of 700 sleeves will be displayed in an exhibition at the Idea Generation Gallery in Shoreditch over Record Store Day and sold to raise money for the Teenage Cancer Trust. A great project for a great cause find out more and get involved here

Beautiful work!

Julius on From Austria to NYC

Think the title might’ve been misinterpreted. For “shit” read “stuff” or “things” maybe?

Phil Howard on Shit showreels say

This is really good, very funny, especially the ‘to fast to appreciate it…’ bit! I would slightly agree with Jim though. These are all just a collection of treatments/styles and they do work within various contexts. It’s probably a bit …

Chris on Shit showreels say

So watch constitutes ‘not Shit’ exactly? You can’t craft a statement as confident and entertaining as this without so much as a hint of a retort, surely? The fact is that some of these tricks actually do work in certain …

Stunning design and simply lines. Great stuff.
