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.
