Jessica's Hische's new baby: Minot display typeface

Letterer, illustrator and self-confessed 'crazy cat' Jessica Hische has just revealed her new project - a display typeface called Minot, named after the French word for "child"

Talking about the creation of Minot Font on her website, Hische says:

"Minot is a new display typeface that I had a ton of fun making and hope you guys have just as much fun playing with it. The typeface comes in three styles: Outline, Fill, and Box, and they're meant to be used together to create multi-color headlines.

"I had fun messing with it myself and making examples to show you guys how creative you can get with it. I look forward to seeing this one on your wedding invites, baby announcements (minot means “child” in French) wine labels... just about anything you want to make fancy!"
