Jessica Hische Loves Letters

Brooklyn (by way of Philly) designer/illustartor/typographer/artist Jessica Hische came on our radar this week via her Drop Cap Project. In her words:

Daily Drop Cap is a project I started in September of 2009 in which I illustrate a decorative letter every day (or at least every work day). The project will continue for approximately twelve alphabets and are available for non-commercial use as drop caps on your personal blog.

She also made limited edition 8x8 letterpress prints of each letter for sale individually or as a set.  (If you buy the whole set she'll send you a cake as well!)  They're currently on display at Art in the Age in Philadelphia.

Only a few years removed from art school, she's already very accomplished - she was featured as one of Step Magazine’s 25 Emerging Artists, Communication Arts “Fresh”, Print Magazine’s New Visual Artists 2009 (commonly referred to as Print’s 20 under 30), and The Art Directors Club Young Guns.

Here's a short look into Jessica and the project:
