Jessica Hische

Jessica Hische is an American letterer, illustrator, and type designer based in San Francisco. After graduating in 2006 from the Tyler School of Art with a degree in Graphic and Interactive Design she worked for two companies in Philadelphia. She launched her freelance career in 2009 citing her appreciation for the balance between work and personal life. In an article on the Ways We Work she says this about why she does what she does:

“There’s two things. One is that I just love the process. It’s super meditative for me. I like having constraints. I love the world of design and commercial art. I’m not one of those people that’s going to swear off clients forever, because I like the purpose that a client-driven work style brings. There’s enjoyment in having someone at the other side of it be happy.”  

More of her work can be seen on her website and Instagram.  Some of her merchandise can be purchased here.
