Fear.Less is a collaborative project between Daniel Ting ChongJordan Metcalf. The objects are all representative of weapons/items used in acts of crime in South Africa, both by criminal and the law.


The objects seek to playfully examine the place of fear and crime in South Africa context, framing our obsession with violence and the casual paranoia we all seem to suffer from. By scaling the objects and turning them into artworks, the artists aim to re-contextualise  the place these items hold in our everyday lives.

Several different production methods were used to create the final wooden objects.”

South African illustrator/designer Jordan Metcalf has been on a roll lately and recently posted some excellent illustrations for the 2011 X Games. The images are black and white, kinetic and super fun to look at.

South African designer and typographer Jordan Metcalf has been busy and recently released some slick typographical imagery produced for Nike. You can see the work in his Behance portfolio but also get a glimpse of more of his efforts in his Flickr-folio.

Jordan Metcalf has some really nice art and illustration work in his Flickr-folio. It doesn’t really stop at illustration, however as he also generates some equally stunning examples of typography. He guards his work closely though so the images of his work are small.
