SketchXchange with Jordan Metcalf, Moderated by Erik Marinovich

South African (newly relocated to Portland) designer and illustrator Jordan Metcalf explains his creative process and shares the magic of his imagination during this inspiring talk. His breathtaking typography and lettering has appeared on the covers of National Geographic and Oprah Magazine and in The New York Times Magazine, plus on walls, editorial pages, packaging, book covers and apparel for Nike and Reebok. Jordan’s consistent mastery of emoting type is pushing boundaries in the design world, and this is a rare opportunity to meet and learn from Jordan himself.

We also welcome San Francisco based lettering artist and designer Erik Marinovich. Erik is also the co-founder of Friends of Type. Since 2009 he has drawn letters, logos and type for nice folks like: Nike, Target, Google, Hilton, Facebook, Sonos, Sharpie, The Criterion Collection, Air Canada, Gap, Ford Motor Company. In 2012 he co-founded Title Case, a creative work space that conducts workshops and lectures. Between client work, teaching and side-projects, you’ll find him on the road promoting Keep Fresh Stay Rad and Let’s Go Letter Hunting, two new releases from Friends of Type published by Princeton Architectural Press.
