Daily Drop Cap: Jessica Hische

Jessica Hische is an extraordinarily talented type designer and illustrator. She had an incredible project going that I recommend to anyone even casually interested in design. Daily Drop Cap is a site where Ms. Hische posts one impeccable and unique capital letter (in repeating alphabetical order) every day and makes them available to use just like this one, as a beautiful drop cap. Her attention to baroque decoration nears the detail of another favorite, Marian Bantjes. (Check out her Nabokov cover: Transparent Things.)


She was an intern at Louise Fili’s design studio for a few years and is responsible for some of their beautiful work including these winners.

How long can she keep up designing theses letters a day? She’s half way through the third cycle as I write this, I can only hope she keeps going. If you’re interested in seeing more of her stuff, check out her professional portfolio and her blog—she has even more to impress you with there.
