Ffffound is my favourite website

http://www.ffffound.com is a site were users upload interesting pictures, sometimes photos but mostly illustrations, that appeal to an aesthetic. These aren’t jokey pics, so don’t expect to see kittens falling off tvs. The best bit is that when you click an image you go to a page with similar images. Hours can disappear from your life by just following the images. Its awesome.

I’ve made a screensaver by batch downloading a whole bunch of ffffound images and then point my slideshow screensaver to that folder. I’ve got about 5,000 images and the best screensaver I’ve ever had. Coolest thing is I got 3 screens at work and each of them displays different images. Bliss. 🙂

About torgnyhylen

I'm an digital creative director working in Cape Town South Africa for Ogilvy Interactive. I've been designing in some capacity for the last 14 years, 12 of those online. I love what I do... and if there was one thing I wish I could do more of... it would be to paint. Besides movies and art, my other serious past-time is good old pen & paper role-playing games. Writing stories for friends that take years to complete and are improved beyond recogination by their participation is a real kick.

    Got an invite for me? 🙂 They’ve been invite-only since I can remember. I’ve resorted to using delicious.com and tagging all my found images with “picture”.
