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.

Trafik

Based in the city of Lyon, Trafik are a French design studio producing some terrific work across branding and environments. They’ve previously been fffeatured before, but it was a while ago now and they’re pretty great so let’s all refresh our memories, and check out the newer work too.

Made Edition 2

Thomas from Hunt&Co got in touch with news of Edition 2 of Made Quarterly. The second edition of MADE Quarterly features: Mast Brothers (USA), Best Made Co (USA), Huet Brothers (NLD), Stevie Gee (GBR), Earth Tu Face (USA), March Studio (AUS), Uniform Wares (GBR), Henry Wilson (AUS), Ben Huff (USA) and Minimalux (GBR). MADE Edition Two also features four individual covers, each displaying chosen works from their esteemed contributors.

Go buy it here – they’ll post it to you and everything!

New(ish) Demo

Robbie Powell, from Moffitt.Moffitt, got in touch recently (well months ago really, I’ve been busy alright!) to tell me about the new (but now a bit old) issue of DEMO Magazine. The Moffitt.Moffitt-s design, direct, publish and almost everything else to do with DEMO all on their own – quite the achievement. I don’t think they print it, but they did build the new App version of their magazine all on their own, too.

Thought Assembly – new site, new name, new work

Thought Assembly are the renamed, rebranded persona for Melbourne, Australia based Studio Verse. The new name isn’t all – there’s also a tonne of new work to see and appreciate on their new site, like this attractive and restrained identity for Archichannel . The eagle eyed amongst FFF readers might spot a few issues of the highly regarded Process Journal amongst the projects – that’s because Studio Verse, ahem, Thought Assembly, work with Hunt Studio (who have also renamed to Hunt&Co - sheez!) to create the publication we all know and love so well. And I think that is a new record for number of links in a FFF post for me. Exciting stuff, might go have a lie down after all that…

End of Work – New Site

End of Work are a young up and coming Australian design studio making a bit of a name for themselves, winning 9 awards at the recent Australian Design Biennale. They’ve just launched a brand new site, showcasing an enviable portfolio of their recent projects. I particularly admire the above identity for Sydney restaurant Meet The Greek – it’s just as tasty as the food, which I can personally attest to being particularly excellent.

On top down under

AGDA Awards becomes Australian Design Biennale 2012 Some big changes have been in the works with the way the Australian Graphic Design Association (AGDA) structure and promote their awards program, held every two years. Say hello to the Australian Design Biennale – a re-imagining of AGDA’s awards, from the categories, the publication and even to the naming and the event itself. Expectations amongst the industry are high, and the first visible sign of change and progress is this spiffy new awards showcase site, courtesy of Melbourne shop Beyond The Pixels.

It’s a great looking site that finally gives an online platform to showcase the work of Australia’s design community. There’s tons of work from amongst the best the Australian design industry has to offer, and as a somewhat patriotic Aussie designer who loves spreading the word on the very best from down under, it’s a very welcome resource indeed!

2012 Best Awards Now Live

Every year, I get excited like a kid on Christmas Day. Why? Because the Best Awards, which recognises the best of NZ creativity, is updated with the latest batch of amazing work from this over-performing, under-recognised corner of the globe. Why and how they keep delivering the goods in NZ, I’m not sure, but hot damn they know how to design in the land of the long white cloud.

Image above is a piece titled ‘Digital Wattle’ by Out of the dark. And yes, my Aussie pride (read: Kiwi jealousy) is exactly why I confusingly chose an Opera House image to promote NZ creativity. Couldn’t help myself, I’m patriotic ok!

Outcast Editions

If, like me, you love books in all their different shapes and sizes, you’re probably, like me, a bit concerned about what the future holds for them. Thankfully we now have Outcast Editions, a remarkable collaboration of three thoroughly impressive people.

Between the enviable reputation of Virginia McLeod, Editorial Director, the keen eye of Richard Glover, Director of Photography and the esteemed Hamish Muir (of 8vo fame) as Art Director, I’d lay a fairly hefty bet that they’re on the path to making something we’ll all be using, downloading and enjoying in the coming months. If you don’t believe me, visit the site and check out the quite detailed explanation of their concept and the mechanics of how their books will work.

I’ve been ask to help out with beta testing the app, and if you can’t tell, I can barely contain my excitement.

Sam Pemberton

Sydney based designer Sam Pemberton has launched his online portfolio, featuring some beautiful branding projects you may be familiar with; City of Melbourne, Woolmark, National Museum of Australia and a few others you may not know as well. A long delayed entrance to the online world, but I think you’ll agree that Sam’s work was definitely worth the wait.

Bianca Chang

I’m not known for my patience with fiddly and time consuming things. Which makes my excitement and awe of Bianca Chang’s painstaking and beautiful work cutting, carving and layering paper, even more acute. I happened upon her work for OPSM at the mall (of all places). Curious, I tweeted out to see if anyone knew the person responsible, thanks to Paul from Naughtyfish for the helpful reply tweet that solved the mystery.

Process Journal Edition Six

The nice chaps from Process Journal got in touch about the latest release of Process Magazine; it’s a great issue too, featuring some great studios and individuals producing amazing work;

Featuring; Sea Design, Unit Editions, Wieden+Kennedy, NB Studio, Ultra Studio, DesignStudio, Underware, BVD, Kobi Benezri Studio, Daniel Freytag (Berg), Dowling Duncan and with essays from Dellano Pereira and Clinton Duncan.

Chatter

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.
