Cape Town, South Africa-based typeface designer and artist Jordan Metcalf has a knack for creating puzzling, intricate algorithms in the form of typefaces. Whether experimenting with personal projects or commissioned by well-known corporations, the designer has quite the love affair with all things type. The folk music-loving designer can also be found collaborating with three other designers/illustrators under the name Only Today.
