GUM CARD #5: Jessica Hische

Here we go, a new week and a new GUM CARD. I’m crazy excited to announce the 5th card in the series, none other than that typographic wizard Jessica Hische. When I made the initial list of designers I wanted to include in the project, Jessica’s name was right at the top. And as I discovered over the last few weeks, she is probably the “most requested” designer to have her own GUM CARD. No foolin’, I got piles of notes demanding a Hische.

I managed to hang out with Jessica and a small group of people in Brighton last year at Flash on the Beach. Funny gal, great stories, swears and loves talkin’ about type. Everything I like in a fellow designer.

So here we go, 5 GUM CARDS designs with more on the way. As of typing this post we have 7 days left on the Indiegogo fundraising effort. Only 7 days to cut in line and grab the first two cards before they are unleashed online to the masses. These are all limited edition, man. Once they’re gone, they’re gone. So if you’re planning on pledging, don’t drag those heels.

Thank-you so much for being a part of this little project, Jessica! You rock.

  1. You’ll see, at the end he’ll tell us that the whole bunch is working on a project together.

    Nice work! Why is Jessica’s bio left aligned and the others centered?

  3. Awesome pick and awesome work on the card! I was also noticing the alignment being different then the others, though it was probably just a quick mistake.

    Good eye guys. Before printing the first 2 cards I changed the backs to include a left-align. I was talking with Simon (commented above) on Twitter about the center-alignment and I started messing with my source files. Simon was right, the left-align works better in terms of readability. Cleans it up a bit.

    Good call, and good luck with the series.

    Pardon my French, but the last thing this field needs is more rockstar designer bullshit. Spend your time doing pro bono work for a local nonprofit if you feel that you have a surplus of free time.

    Oh calm down, Evan. If you don’t like the idea, move along. The last thing this field actually needs is more anonymous trolling.
