More beautiful design from Jordan Metcalf, this time taken from his US magazine and exhibition portfolio.

Whether he’s experimenting with type, designing covers for international magazines or illustrating for an exhibition, Jordan Metcalf‘s standard of work is always impeccable. The Cape Town based graphic designer and artist let us know a bit about some of his latest.

The first were created for Boston Magazine, a publication that covers the lifestyle, politics and culture of the Massachusetts capital. Jordan designed the table of contents, an opening DPS and sub-section headers for the 2012 edition of their hugely popular, annual ‘Best of Boston’ issue. Take a look at the full project here.

These type based cover designs were created for US magazines, Poets & Writers and Popular Mechanics. The Popular Mechanics cover is a modern spin on the decorative printing styles from the era the magazine was conceived in and was designed for the 110th Anniversary edition of the magazine.
