Through what she calls “procrastiworking,” Jessica found that you have to pay attention to what you really love doing, and if you’re not doing it at work, find a career that involves more of what you enjoy doing every day. Her numerous and highly successful side projects, and the beautiful lettering she is most known far are a testament to how great your work can be when you truly love what you do.

Jessica shared a bit about her process as well, showing sketches and sharing influences. Inspired by the vast library of her mentor Louise Fili, she developed a philosophy for creating her lettering, which she describes as being akin to “drawing a friend from memory, rather than tracing a photo.” Influenced by the past, yet thoroughly modern and unique.

The TYPO SF audience got a preview of things to come, and Jessica has some more amazing work on the horizon. Be sure to check out her workshops at her studio Title Case.
