Girls in Design- Spotlight On: Jessica Hische

Jessica Hische is one of my favourite typographers and I look up to her elegant designs and typography work immensely. She graduated from the Tyler School of Art with a degree in Graphic Design in 2006. Currently based in Brooklyn, New York, Hische started off working at Headcase Design before moving to New York to work for Louise Fili. Jessica then decided to stride out on her own and is now a freelance designer, illustrator and typographer.

You might know her from her wonderful Daily Drop Cap project, which features beautifully designed drop cap letters posted daily (or at least regularly!)

She is also the creator of the delightful Buttermilk font which you can purchase from here

High profile clients of Jessica’s include Tiffany & Co, Penguin Books, Victoria’s Secret and The Wall Street Journal. Here are a few samples from her portfolio.
