Anatomy is the first ever premium sneaker store located in the city’s vibrant district of Braamfontein. This distinguished South African sneaker store specializes in exclusive sneakers and limited edition apparel and accessories.
My approach to the branding and physical space was to reveal internal structures that work in a particular ecosystem and bring through nuances of dissection and elements that felt organic.

Nike Sandton is the first Nike Women’s partner store on the African continent and features bespoke services, weekly programming and tailored events.

An additional section to the project was to develop a concept for a ceiling piece, in which we created a Free Run 3.0 sole, extruded from the ceiling.Branding, Graphic Design, Illustration2015

In collaboration with iKineo, I was asked to design the facade of Looms retail men's store in Johannesburg which was also accompanied by a poster. Celebrating their launch of their online and interactive store windows, the concept was 'Spam'.
Loom's online and physical words collided to create an entirely new and engaging shopping experience. From the pavement to the packaging, passersby and loyal customers were exposed to a new realm of retail that went beyong a simple purchase. By developing a highly inegrated experience, we helped establish Loom as a hub for innovation, whilst setting a new benchmark for immersive retail in South Africa.Advertising, Branding, Illustration2013

'Heart of Gold' is a playful exploration of the concepts of money, consumerism and greed by Jordan Metcalf and Daniel Ting Chong. Following on the form of their previous project Fear.Less, the artists have played with scale and medium to re-contextualise consumer-based iconography and lexicon as art. The pieces are stark, sleek and graphic, using limited colour palettes and diverse mediums such as glass, paper, wood and ceramic.

I was comissioned by Nike South Africa to brand their new running club called ‘Braamfie Runners’. I used a typographic approach for the logo and formed a lockup by intergrating the letters ‘B’ & ‘R’ to emphasize the movement of running. I also created symbols that represented the different levels of runners: Novice, Intermediate and Experienced.
Each symbol represents an internal organ which is pivotal to the human body when exercising. Namely the Heart, Lungs and Thorax. The complexity of each symbol differentiates the level of the runner as well as the difficulty of the run. Each runner receives their symbol as a sticker to mark their routes around the city.

This is my first range of pillowcase designs. The pillowcases are printed on both sides and have been designed in such a way that one side represents day while the other represents night. You place the pillow on the side that corresponds with the appropriate time of day. In essence, I feel that the pillowcases represent a state of ‘conscious sleeping’. Each set comes with two pillowcases produced from 200 thread percale cotton and packaged in a vacuum sealed plastic. They're on sale at local stores in Cape Town but international shipping is also available.Design, Product Design2011

Fear.Less is a collaborative project between Daniel Ting Chong & Jordan 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.
