Admiring the minimalist art of freelance graphic designer and illustrator Levente Szabo. The Hungarian designer is know for his spartan approach to design using basic linear shapes and solid colors. On Talking with the Pros he says this about how his job as an illustrator influences his life:
“I like the term ‘design is a way of thinking’.”
“And I know it’s a cliché, but you can constantly learn from your surroundings: are you traveling with a bus? Look at the passengers – how does an ear look like from behind? Are you sitting in a loud pub? What are the people talking about based on their body language? Are you just walking the dog? Look up and enjoy the rarely seen details of the buildings! There are interesting details everywhere and the more you know, the more tools you’ll have when you sit down drawing.”

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.
