Jessica Hische Thu, Apr 27, 2017
Here's an inspiring artist for you all on this fine Thursday!
Jessica Hische is a hand lettering artist/typographer/graphic designer who has done work for clients such as Wes Anderson, Dave Eggers, Penguin Books, The New York Times, Tiffany & Co., OXFAM America, McSweeney’s, American Express, Target, Victoria’s Secret, Chronicle Books, Nike, MailChimp, and Samsung, among others. She's made the Forbes 30 under 30 list (twice), and has been named Print New Visual Artist, ADC Young Gun, and GDUSA Person to Watch. Needless to say, she knows what she's doing and she's got it goin' on.
One of the cool things about Jessica (aside from how talented she is) is her work ethic. The body of work that she's created in her career is immense. She's incredibly hard-working and is always creating. When she left her job to start her own business, she illustrated a "Drop Cap a Day" (a drop cap is a decorative element typically used in documents at the start of a section or chapter. It's a large capital letter at the beginning or a paragraph or text block that has the depth of two or more lines of normal text.) But she didn't just go through the alphabet once or twice, like most people would. She went through it 12 times! She's incredibly inventive and dedicated and is continually creating awesome work. Aside from that, she's refreshingly honest and transparent and just an all-around cool human being and I'm always inspired by her.
