I have been a big, no HUGE, fan of Jessica Hische for a long, long time. Her work combines two of my favorite things, hand-drawn typography and elegant, playful illustration. While looking through her portfolio today, I am reminded again why I love her work: each design is uniquely beautiful, each word speaks on its own and each individual letter begins to tell a detailed and intricate story. I have so much respect and admiration for Hische's work. It is quite obvious that she is passionate about what she does, and her drive shines through each of her pieces. So, I wanted to share some of her work with you. Also be sure to check out her site, blog (with tons of great design inspiration) and store (she has some great stuff for sale)!!!
This is Jessica's font Buttermilk. I just moved it to the top of my font wish-list. Beautiful!
The above letters are from her Daily Drop Cap project. This daily project, combined with teaching Typography right now, has really inspired me to do more personal hand lettering just for fun. Check out the whole project here!
