Spotlight: Jessica Hische

ovely letterforms that are graphic and playful, are at Jessica Hische's website, Daily Drop Cap. Scroll down the pages for all sorts of neat ways to illustrate letters. Check out Jessica's blog, I love Type for more lettering inspiration and her professional porfolio also. When asked for advise from people who want to design type and lettering, she says "If you want to be a good type designer, you have to make as much of it as possible and look at as much of it as possible. Buy old type books (if you can find them). Buy art history books about vintage type (Euro Deco is one I’ll always recommend — tons of great examples). Practice, practice, practice. If you have the patience to keep plugging along at it, you’ll be great in no time, I swear."
