1. We proudly present the talk with Jessica Hische from Way Out West Talks made by Yay Festival, Luger and Sony.

    We booked Jessica for last years Yay Festival but she got sick and had to cancel. This year we got her to Way Out West Talks! 2012 Jessica got on Forbes list of "30 under 30" that lists the future stars. She is a global superstar illustrator and letterer and she works with clients such as Wes Anderson and Penguin Books. She has over 65 000 followers on twitter and her talk at Way Out West Talks was fabulous.

  3. In a recent two-day Gestalten workshop, participants worked closely with Jessica Hische (a letterer, illustrator, and crazy cat lady known for her silly side projects and occasional foul mouth, as she jokingly describes herself) to develop a full vector alphabet and learn about drawing type in a short amount of time. Hische has been named a Forbes Magazine “30 under 30” in art and design as well as an ADC Young Gun and one of Print Magazine’s “New Visual Artists”. Gestalten.tv took the chance of a very brief break during the workshop to let Jessica talk us through some of the pros and cons of the letters B/E/R/L/I/N. Her work is profiled in:

  5. At least as well known for her ‘check this out’ worthy side projects as for her actual ‘real’ work, Hische has been carving out a niche for herself in internet lore with a series of websites that range from the quirky to the useful. There’s ‘Blurry Pictures of my Friends’, ‘Mom, This is How Twitter Works’, and ‘Don’t Fear the Internet (with Russ Maschmeyer)’, which is probably the prettiest guide to HTML and CSS every written. Primarily a letterer, she’s done heaps and heaps of work for clients such as Tiffany & Co., The New York Times and Wired Magazine. We agree entirely with her URL.
