Goudy & Syracuse: The Tale of a Typeface Found

The story of rediscovering Sherman, a typeface designed by Fredric Goudy in 1910 and revived by Chester Jenkins in 2016 for Syracuse University. It’s a fascinating tale that sheds light on the charismatic Will La Moy and the ripples of how his discoveries influenced the work Pentagram did rebranding Syracuse University.

The Typefaces


The Typefaces are simply faces in type. Born in a book, they can now be found climbing walls, walking the malls, and spending way too much time on social media.

Artist Jessica Hische Creates Amazing Typographic Artworks


Many typographers fit the designer mold “to a t”, after all it does take a critical eye to weigh over such small detail so thoroughly. Jessica Hische is one young typographer who is breaking that mold and as the field sees a new renaissance, she’s one designer you should keep your “I’s” on.

The field of typography is one design niche that is currently undergoing a groundswell of appreciation. One undisputed leader pushing this focus on type is an unassuming young woman from “Nowheresville, Pennsylvania” named Jessica Hische. Besides her fundamental understanding of the field, she also brings her own quirkiness, originality, and sense of humor to her work. The result is an original approach to a timeless challenge – Giving words the ability to communicate both thoughts and emotions.

Besides working with an amazing array of clients who appreciate her work, she’s also picked up a few industry awards worth noting. Forbes has listed her twice as a “30 under 30” in Art and Design, ADC has titled her a “Young Gun”, STEP Magazine has designated her as one of “25 Emerging Artists”, and she also serves on the Type Directors Club Board of Directors. In my opinion one of the most engaging aspects of Jessica’s work is that she seems to have found her passion at such a young age.

You‘ve probably seen her work on recent AmEx commercials, MailChimp branding, or Wes Anderson movies.
