Wraptious brief with Make it in Design

Hey two posts in one week! How organised am I!!!

I just wanted to share with you all that some of my designs are for sale on the wonderful Wraptious website! Wraptious create bespoke cushions, tshirts, homewares, art prints, etc. showcasing a range of work from up and coming designers. As part of the last module I did with the Make it in Design school, we were given a brief to submit to Wraptious as a final project, and now those designs are actually for sale! You can see my work along with work by all my fellow Make it in Design students on their website now.

Artist crush: Jessica Hische

It’s a long time since I did my first artist crush post about Erik Marinovich, but I really enjoy sharing my artistic inspirations/icons and talking about how awesome they are!!

If you love hand lettered anything haven’t heard of Jessica Hische, then this blog post is for you because she has amazing typography skills! Her work has been published on pretty much everything, from book covers to art prints to product labels. She did a beautiful typography collection of hardback classics for Penguin Books and is responsible for the MailChimp logo too. Take a look at some of her work below…

And she has a fantastic class on Skillshare about designing stand-out drop cap lettering, inspired by the Penguin Books project, where she talks about her process and design journey, in all her nerdy glory!
