Why she's awesome:

Jessica Hische is a letterer and illustrator best known for her personal projects Daily Drop Cap and the Should I Work for Free? flowchart. She’s been named one of Print Magazine’s New Visual Artists and an ADC Young Gun, one of Forbes 30 under 30 in Art and Design, and currently serves on the TDC board of Directors.

Not to mention she's so ridiculously talented that it makes me want to quit life.

Her work as appeared on the big screen. She was tapped to create the titles for Wes Anderson's Moonrise Kingdom. Jessica recently designed the totes bags for SXSW Interactive, of which I am a proud owner.

Also, she just gave birth to the cutest little human.


Ummm... "Girl Crushes"?

CNN defines a girl crush as "part jealousy, part admiration," and I agree. I love women who are uncompromising, whether it be in there professional or personal lives. I admire fierceness, intelligence and talent. The women in this feature embody that and more.

I'm Mina Markham, a Sass-lovin' front-end architect in Dallas, TX. I founded the Dallas chapter of Girl Develop It & DFW Sass. I love conferences; I co-organize Front Porch & give talks all over.
