Typography is a complex but ever-inviting universe and we have just the right person to show us the way through this wonderful territory. Jordan Metcalf is an experimental lettering artist and graphic designer who proves to the world that if you can dream it, you can definitely do it. This can be seen in every letter he draws and in every project he shares with the world.
Regardless if we’re talking about his work with brands, his personal projects or his sketches, Jordan Metcalf’s love for letters and experimentation is clear as daylight. His bold, unforgettable designs have traveled from South Africa (where he was born) and Portland (where he is based) out into the entire wide world.
He worked with no others than National Geographic, Nike, The New York Times, Reebok, Adobe, The Guardian and the list can go on and on and on. Damn, if his portfolio doesn’t speak loud enough, he was even named an ADC Young Gun in 2013 by the Art Directors Club New York.
His lettering and illustration fusions left unforgettable marks on paper, walls, book covers, packaging and magazines. Needless to say, we’re often times left speechless by his curiosity and imagination. One of these moments is right now. We’re more than pleased to have him on our line-up this year.
Make sure you’ll be in the conference room when Jordan Metcalf talks about how strong values such as commitment, perseverance and a never ending desire to play can drive you forward and shape your career.
