I’m Jessica Hische, I'm a letterer, illustrator, occasional type designer, and—newly— an author! I've worked for a wide variety of clients including Wes Anderson (I designed the titles for Moonrise Kingdom), Penguin Books, Starbucks, Target, and Dave Eggers.
I've created a bunch of web-centric side projects over the years including Daily Drop Cap, Don’t Fear the Internet, Inkerlinker, and Should I Work for Free? and through building my side project (and portfolio) sites, I became a some-what proficient front-end web developer (though I mostly keep that a secret, as I only do it for fun).
I'm fresh off maternity leave and have a 4 month old daughter named Ramona.
This is the second AMA I’m doing here on Designer News (Here’s the first!), and I’m happy to answer any questions. I am an open book.
