    About The Book

    This show-all romp through design-world darling Jessica Hische’s sketchbook reveals the creative and technical process behind making award-winning hand lettering. See everything, from Hische’s rough sketches to her polished finals for major clients such as Wes Anderson, NPR, and Starbucks. The result is a well of inspiration and brass tacks information for designers who want to sketch distinctive letterforms and hone their skills. 

    With more than 250 images and metallic silver ink printed throughout to represent her penciled sketches, this highly visual book is an essential—and entirely enjoyable—resource for those who practice or simply appreciate the art of hand lettering.

    Come on out Portland, meet Jessica and grab a great book.

  • Alien She
    September 03, 2015 – January 09, 2016

    Curated by: Astria Suparak and Ceci Moss

    We’re proud to be a presenting sponsor for this amazing exhibit downtown. 

    Alien She will be on display at two locations: Museum of Contemporary Craft and three blocks away the 511 Gallery at Pacific Northwest College of Art.

    Riot Grrrl formed in reaction to pervasive and violent sexism, racism and homophobia in the punk music scene and in the culture at large. Its participants adapted strategies from earlier queer and punk feminisms and ‘70s radical politics, while also popularizing discussions of identity politics occurring within academia, but in a language that spoke to a younger generation.
