Jordan Metcalf – Advertising Age

A particular hit which landed on desks and screens early this year was the stunning work that Jordan Metcalf created for Advertising Age’s “Top Ad Campaigns of the 21st Century” issue.

Jordan was commissioned last year to create the cover, ebook cover and two badges for online use to support the realise of the issue. The team at Advertising Age were looking for a very modern and future oriented approach to the typography, well ask and you shall receive.

The issue contains the top 15 ad campaigns of the 21st Century along with behind the scenes stories of how the ground breaking BMW Films were created, how the guerrilla tactics of American Legacy Foundation’s Truth campaign inspired, how The Man Your Man Could Smell Like and a Subservient Chicken showed how much fun interactivity could be and why PC vs Mac made comparative advertising not only palatable, but entertaining.

Reptile Brain Music

BoomArtwork produces an album cover for Swedish rock band Imperial State Electric.
Nicke Andersson; former front man of The Hellacopters approached BoomArtwork to create the art for the vinyl album of his new band. He asked for something bold and vintage to illustrate the record title 'Reptile Brain Music', so BoomArtwork set to work using his fabulous design and illustrative skills and made this punchy retro visual, he says "... First I drew the hand of Zeus with my brush and ink, and then the crocodiles eating each other's tail. In Photoshop I placed everything together and then started with the typography. Instead of using an existing typeface I thought it would make the album more special to create custom lettering. After finishing I added some filters to make it look like it was released in the 70's. It was so much fun to illustrate an LP album cover, as it is such a cool, tactile canvas to work on."
