Jessica Hische is Awesome

I’m a big fan of design. Design done well? That’s simply sublime. Making art, providing art direction, strategy, managing sticky projects and getting them unstuck; I’m pretty comfortable with all these things. Something that befuddles me a little more is the question: “Will you work for free?” After all, I’ve worked pretty hard to develop a certain expertise. It seems to me that if it’s going to be valued then there should be rules that govern. That’s when I remembered Jessica Hische, a favorite designer. She created a flow chart on the subject and shared her on point guidance. She sells a letterpress version as well. Oh yes, her other work is brilliant too.
