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.

We Choose the Moon

This month is the 40th Anniversary of the famous Apollo Moon Landing. To celebrate the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum has launched a new website.  The goal of the website is to allow visitors to experience the Apollo 11 mission in real time. The website will go live at 2.35pm (GMT) July 16th which is exactly 40 years after the historic launch. Not specifically design related but for anyone with imagination, this is a must.

Gary Taxali

The wonderful Gary Taxali. Image above is from a recent post on his Drawger blog regarding his  feelings on the industry.

“Don’t Call Me In the last little while, there has been a MAJOR backslide in the industry. Poor rates have been an issue for a while but things are becoming worse. Clients’ fees are getting even lower and the rights they’re demanding are even higher.

You want examples? How about SWATCH calling me and asking me to design a watch. They wanted a complete transfer of copyright for a paltry fee. As if that’s going to happen. Google calls me and wants my work for their new search engine all over the web, the fee? Nothing. Editorial clients are slashing 1999′s fees almost in half and citing the bad economy as an excuse. You know what? My excuse is that the economy is bad so you have to pay me MORE for an illustration. How’s that for an economic stimulus package?

So here’s to every client with shitty fees and terms. Do not waste my time or contact me. I am very busy working with clients who respect artists and you’re wasting my time with your solicitations. So for you, I give you a special salute that I hope will keep you away because I don’t need your work.”

Well said.

Justine Lai

Justine Lai paints herself having sexual intercourse with the Presidents of America.

“The presidency itself is a seemingly immortal and impenetrable institution; by inserting myself in its timeline, I attempt to locate something intimate and mortal.”

This one’s for you Richard Timney.

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 …

Jim on Shit showreels say

Stunning design and simply lines. Great stuff.
