There are a few designers who continuously amaze and inspire me, and Jessica Hische is definitely at the top of my list. She is a versatile lettering artist, designer, and additionally offers frequent invaluable (and sometimes humorous) advice on her blog. Most recently, I found her article on pricing to be amazingly eye-opening and down to earth. For those illustrators and designers out there who run their own business, this is a must-read!
One of my favorite side projects of hers is Daily Drop Cap. I love the imaginative solutions these designers use to illustrate the alphabet. Be sure to check it out if you haven't already!
