Salty Little Sailor Posters
Jessica Molina is a lettering artist and illustrator based in Dallas, Texas. Her work is known for its bold messaging, bright colors, and beautiful letterforms. The design industry is such a powerful force. Designers have an opportunity to use their talents to create and support mindful, authentic narratives featuring unconventional and underrepresented perspectives and faces. This is especially true for women and other underrepresented groups.
The time is now to showcase the work of people like Jessica who are creating meaningful, progressive work that promotes equality, encourages creativity, and inspires the next generation of designers. We asked her a few questions about her work, inspiration, and what’s up next.
Tell us about your design background? How did you get started?
I began my design career as an intern but I had no intention of working in the field until I fell into it by accident, but it’s been one of the most rewarding decisions I have ever made! During my internship, I was exposed to an entirely new way of thinking about design and its impact on consumers’ lives. It felt right—a natural fit that challenged me to see things differently every day.
I really try to think outside the box which can be intimidating but also really fun when you have amazing teammates that are also willing to do just that!” Last but not least, Jessica is so honored to be a part of this movement in the illustration community. When she isn't creating, you'll find her dancing in her kitchen, or listening to an audiobook on repeat while she makes art.
