Thanks for sparing the time to check out this little space! This marks my first official blog entry to my website. This place will be where I share my thoughts on the work of established Typographers and Illustrators in the creative industries. I'm currently based at New College Nottingham (NCN) doing my Foundation degree in Graphic Design (Illustration) which i'm currently enjoying - the challenges, learning curves and the importance of social networking!
Over the course of my summer holidays this year, I compiled research into a multitude of designers & illustrators, and one of whom who grabbed my attention was Jessica Hische.
Jessica's contributions within the graphic design realm is extensive, she has a book out titled In Progress which is a sneak-peak into her creative working process. Which is currently on my Amazon wish list this year.
To see her folio of work, you can visit her website here at : http://jessicahische.is/working
Since discovering her work, I was inspired to try my hand at typography and calligraphy which came with varying results. These exercises are a great way of creative problem solving, figuring out how to approach a certain type or font - which takes a steady hand and patience.
