Jessica Hische

Letterer, Illustrator, Avid-Internetter


Sponsors include Offset Impressions and Mohawk


After graduating with a degree in Graphic and Interactive Design from Tyler School of Art, she worked for Headcase Design in Philadelphia before taking a position as Senior Designer at Louise Fili Ltd. While working for Louise, Jessica also maintained a busy freelance career and after two and a half years of little sleep and a lot of lettering, she left to further her freelance career and embark on several personal projects.


Jessica has become as well known for her side projects as she has for her client work. While she doesn't consider herself a web designer, many of her personal projects are web-centric. Her project Daily Drop Cap, is probably the reason you first stumbled across Jessica's work, and she's created several educational micro-sites including Mom This is How Twitter Works, Should I Work for Free? and Don’t Fear the Internet (a collaborative project with Russ Maschmeyer).


Jessica's clients include Wes Anderson, Tiffany & Co., The New York Times, Penguin Books, Target, Leo Burnett, and Wired Magazine. She's been named a Print Magazine New Visual Artist (20 under 30), one of Forbes 30 under 30 in Art and Design, an ADC Young Gun, a "Person to Watch" by GD USA, and one of 25 Emerging Artists by STEP Magazine. She is currently serving on the Type Directors Club Board of Directors.
