    Jordan Metcalf – Adweek

    The May issue of Adweek includes a feature titled ‘The Power List’, it’s a feature that ranks 100 media industry movers and shakers based on influence, profits and various other aspects. They knocked on the HF door wondering if a certain Mr. Metcalf could be able to deliver a type treatment which was powerful yet playful to kick the section off.

    As you can see from the result boy did he deliver. Look at that shading!

    Sarah Maycock – William & Son

    Mayfair based rifle makers William & Son are on the move, packing up their Mount Street store and heading for beautiful new premises on nearby Bruton Street. To mark this new chapter and to tell their customers they commissioned Sarah Mayfair to illustrate their new building in all it’s glory.

    Taking things one step further, creative agency Material Organistation came up with the clever idea of animating the short journey from the new store to the old and offering some alternative routes. As this charming little animation shows, their customers can choose between the quick route, the foodie route or Handsome Frank’s favoured option, the refreshing route. Bottoms up!

    Matt Murphy – Orlebar Brown

    If something is worth doing then it’s worth doing properly which is the attitude that Orlebar Brown take when approaching their clothing. They got in touch recently to see if the talented Matt Murphy was available to help them tell the story of how to make a pair of their shorts.

    Fortunately Matt was happy to get involved and was able to depict the level of detail that goes into each pair through a series of beautifully crafted step by step images. Gaze your eyes upon them here.

    Jordan Metcalf – O, The Oprah Magazine

    When the team at O, The Oprah Magazine were putting together their big fifteenth anniversary issue they wanted a number of top typographic illustrators to lend their talents to a particularly special feature that required a quote to be beautifully designed as a full page chapter opener.

    We are proud to say that HF’s Jordan Metcalf was given the privilege of creating the final quote in the section with words penned by none other than Miss Winfrey herself. Needless to say Jordan really hit this one out of the park, behold the printed final.

    Secret 7″ 2015

    Being the big hearted bunch that they are, a group of Handsome Frank’s illustrators once again lent their support to the Secret 7″ show this year.

    For those of you who don’t know Secret 7″ is an annual event that combines art and music for a good cause. They take  7 tracks from 7 of the best-known musicians around and press each one 100 times to 7” vinyl. They invite creatives from around the world to interpret the tracks in their own style for every 7”. 700 sleeves are exhibited and then sold for £50 apiece. You don’t know who created the sleeve, or even which song it’s for, until you have parted with your cash – the secret lies within.

    The sale was on Bank Holiday Monday, so now that the secret is out we can reveal which Handsome Frankers took part in the show. From left to right: Sarah Tanat-Jones, Stephen Cheetham (All The Fruits), Michelle Thompson, Matt Murphy, Paul Thurlby, Helen Musselwhite, Jean Jullien, Lesley Barnes and Matt Saunders.
