We all have a favorite fashion or interior designer, writer or singer, playwright or actor, real estate mogul or businessman. Whether or not we share their profession, we admire their work and look to it for inspiration. I couldn't help but laugh when I was chatting with my sister yesterday, and I said, "So I was just checking out some recent projects from my favorite graphic designer..." and I realized I must be one of a select few who have a favorite graphic designer.
Many of you probably know Jessica Hische as the creative genius behind the Daily Drop Cap, a typographic project that spread like wildfire throughout blogland. Well, I've familiarized myself with her portfolio almost to the point of creepy; I love her manipulation of type and they way words become art on a page.
And I simply fell in love with this series she created for a story in People magazine on the Twilight trio. Details of note: the color gradient in the letters, the disparities among the three seemingly identical designs, the delicate swirls that accent the angular type. Needless to say I've added all three to my ever-growing Jessica Hische inspiration folder.
