A CLASSIC® Case of the Mondays

Written by in #ClassicNeenah

How do you make everyone’s least-favorite six letter word a bit more palatable? Start with a strong foundation built by coffee and baked goods, and add Jessica Hische’s happy Buttermilk font and her smart but fanciful Brioche typeface in gold foil to sweetly remind you that there are only 24 hours in a day, even Mondays.

“We knew that we wanted to do a spread featuring vintage revival typefaces. We adore Jessica’s lettering work, but it was important to us to feature downloadable typefaces that designers everywhere can use. Jessica has created some great display fonts that we knew would work beautifully.  And of course it was hard to have just one favorite, so we used two that paired so well together.” –Angela Snyder, Senior Designer, Willoughby Design

Self-described as “That Drop Cap Girl,” Jessica is a prolific and wildly talented lettering artist with quite a client list: Wes Anderson, Tiffany & Co., The New York Times, Penguin Books, and Target to name a few. Her six commercial fonts are available here.

Adding the unexpected feel of CLASSIC COLUMNS® Double Thick Cover as a sleeve to an otherwise ordinary coffee cup goes to show how an attention-grabbing paper and an eye-catching typeface can go a long way in getting your message across.
