Being an Art Director (and designer in general), I’m constantly prowling the internet for cool and inspirational work. Recently, I came across a group of pieces called Fear.Less put on by the talented Daniel Ting Chong and Jordan Metcalf. The objects depicted are weapons/items used in acts of crime in South Africa, both by criminal and the law. The objects are made of wood, and created larger than life.

I look at these and am immediately rushed over with a feeling of jealousy. “Why didn’t I think of that!?!” I love the details and beauty in each of these items. The simplicity of line and shape—reminds me of some of the better modern icon illustrator work you see in editorial and web design all across the globe. But what Daniel and Jordan have done here is taken something that we normally see tiny on a piece of paper or computer screen (or phone!), and enlarged it into a tangible object that really resinates. If you have a few minutes definitely check out each of their individual websites—you’ll be happy you did. Both of these guys are absolutely killing it—so keep your eyes on them folks.

Now I just need to start scheming a way to get some of these pieces on my wall…
