21 Designs Forged By Metal

Using metal or similar materials for a graphic design project can really produce a stunning end result. I’ve compiled a collection of 21 designs forged by metal; ranging from bionic arms, to metal hearts, to iron typography, to a river of flowing metal.

BUT FIRST, here’s 10 mind blowing facts about metal:

  1. The word ‘metal’ derives from the Greek word ‘metallon,’ which means to mine, excavate or extract from the ground.
  2. 75% of all the elements on the periodic table are metals.
  3. At room temperature, all of the metals are solids except for mercury, which is a liquid.
  4. The most common metal found in the Earth’s crust is aluminum.
  5. Even though aluminum is abundant in the crust, the most abundant element in the entire Earth is iron, which makes up a large part of the Earth’s core.
  6. Alkali metals, such as lithium, sodium, potassium, and rubidium, are so reactive they will ignite and even explode if placed in water.
  7. Noble metals, such as silver, gold, and platinum, resist oxidation and corrosion in moist air.
  8. Metals are elastic or tend to bend rather than break.
  9. Gold was discovered in 6000 BC.
  10. Copper even before that, being discovered in 9000 BC.
