not the explicit focus of her work, she offers many useful tips on running a free lance business Her commentary on how she uses her calendars inspired me to rethink how I m using mine I also enjoyed that she discusses how she works with clients and how many drafts she goes through before getting to the final work of art For someone who thinks I have to get it right on the first go, this was very helpful Practically, I love her explanation of taking a sketch through the vector process I didn t understand how to do that before and now I m excited to practice Also, I love love love concept art So her discussion of representing the essence of books on their covers was amazing.Highly recommend to anyone ready to sharpen their skills, interested in exploring a career as a letterer or illustrator, or anyone interested in the creative process You walk away with an appreciation for detail you didn t know you were missing I m a fan of Jessica Hische s work but was hesitant to get this because the pricetag was a bit of a commitment for me To say that it s worth the money is an understatement This book is so beautiful I got overwhelmed and emotional every time I turned the page, and when I got to the part where she shows the bezier handles in her lettering I almost burst into tears I also kept running my fingers down the pages just to feel the paper, then spending a full minute just admiring the colors and layou I m a fan of Jessica Hische s work but was hesitant to get this because the pricetag was a bit of a commitment for me To say that it s worth the money is an

into tears I also kept running my fingers down the pages just to feel the paper, then spending a full minute just admiring the colors and layouts before beginning to read the text Butthan that, the information that Jessica Hische imparted be it technical, personal, or professional made me feel so connected to it It s genuinely helpful, with a disclaimer that what worked for Jessica may not work for other people I haven t been in a good mental place for the last 2 years, but reading the intro reminded me that I used to churn out personal projects regularly, and it made me miss myself.Anyway, I would recommend this to anyone who wants a good design book that has technical digital stuff in it There are a lot of good, practical tips nestled in the way she narrates her processes Please buy it for your designer friends I have a very neutral feeling about this book.Above all, it is very, very pretty Well, being written by a lettering artist, it kind of has to be, right The content was good as well Quick disclaimer I skipped the parts about design software and vectors I letter with pen and paper and I do not intend to change this any time soon partly because I m a broke student and know what the software we re talking about costs Additionally, I ended up merely skimming the parts about ad projects I did I have a very neutral feeling about this book.Above all, it is very, very pretty

projects I did not find interesting It s just that there were a lot of autobiographical elements in it Hische tells the reader about her childhood and youth in a quite explicit and even emotional way Later, when she talks about her projects, I still feel like she talksabout how she felt working on them than what she did and how she created the artwork Not that those things weren t interesting I found especially the stories about her highschool and college years quite inspirational, considering that I am in a quite similar situation at the moment Still, I expected less storytelling andexplaining techniques, so I feel a bit let down I d probably be a little disappointed if I d paid the 19 that it actually costs, but I got it from the library, so I m glad I gave it a go Also, most people probably bought this book for the explanations about vectors and I can t comment on those, so I m sure I did pick up some bits and pieces and quite a little inspiration Although I am not much with lettering, Hische offers up great observations about the creative endeavor First heard about her in a video she produced, specifically, When you re first starting out, being na ve can be really

advice, this one we should all heed The work you do while you re procrastinating is probably the work you should be doing for the rest of your life Great Resource for Learning Hand LetteringThis book was better than I expected In the past when I ve bought books on lettering, they always seem to just be the author showing off their work and then a step by step tutorial on how to do the same exact thing No education on why things work or don t work.This book differs in the fact that the author displays her past client work and explains the whole process from sketch to production She explains the different choices she made and why The best Great Resource for Learning Hand LetteringThis book was better than I expected In the past when I ve bought books on lettering, they always seem to just

displays her past client work and explains the whole process from sketch to production She explains the different choices she made and why The best parts are when she had to upgrade old logos and she pointed out what worked and what didn t work in the old one and the steps she took to make the new one look similar but better She also gives advice on good ways to work with vector shapes when making your final designs in a vector program I feel like I finally learned a lot about how to determine a good typefaces from a bad one However, I do think I was able to absorb the information in this book better because I have studied this topic before, but I still think this is a book for beginners This is a great blend between Jessica s life as she becomes a letterer and some basic lettering process

second book, going further in depth in the lettering and typographic process A wonderfully useful insight into the process of a working freelance artist Jessica Hische has a good eye, a fine attention to detail, and a seriously honed sense of design And she explains it all very well, too It s no wonder she s a sought after resource for so many people and companies I got a few good tips about working with vector art from the book, too. 4,5 5 Let me start off by telling you that the design for this book is on point I really love the use of spot UV and and the metallic graphite colour on the cover The graphite colour is also used throughout the book, in all of Jessica s sketches in the book and it feels like you re really looking at pencil sketches The design of the book is very consistent and the lay out makes it very easy to read and to process all the information without feeling overwhelmed As for the actual writing and 4,5 5 Let me start off by telling you that the design

quips here and there In the first part of the book Hische talks about her favourite tools and her lettering process This was definitely the most informative part of the book and I felt like Hische was very honest, not omitting any steps In the second part of the book we get to see a lot of different projects Hische worked on Every project is explained and even here Hische givesinformation about her process.I believe this will be one of my best purchases this year and definitely one of my favourite books I read this year If you re interested in hand lettering or looking for some very pretty inspiration, this is the book for you
