Popular Mechanics 110th Anniversary Edition

Reading Time: 2 minutes

The work of Cape-Town based designer, illustrator and typographer, Jordan Metcalf, continues to astound and inspire us. His cover design for the 110th Anniversary Edition of Popular Mechanics is exceptionally awesome. Here is some information about the project:

“I was asked by Popular Mechanics to do a type based design for the cover of their 110th Anniversary Edition. After an initial round of ideas we settled on a style that was a modern spin on the decorative printing styles from the era the magazine was conceived in.”
