Guest Blog Post by The Creative Group
As part of this year’s Creative Team of the Future, we asked more than 750 designers to name the one person, living or dead, who most inspires them creatively. Following are five of the most interesting answers (in no particular order) along with thoughts from survey respondents on why these people are so inspiring.

1. JESSICA HISCHE
“I love her work, and her professional story inspires me. She’s done a lot of esteemed work, but she also seems accessible. That makes me feel like I have the power to push my own career in whatever direction I choose.”
Jimmy Fallon rules “Tonight” with a new moon-shaped logo by Emily Oberman of Pentagram’s New York office. Related Oberman clients have included 30 Rock, Late Night, and Saturday Night Live.
Fire and ice, snowflake and flame. Duffy & Partners has updated the Sub-Zero identity and made a better visual connection to Sub-Zero’s Wolf line of ovens. Joe Duffy says the companies now “enjoy their shared kinship while today’s kitchens celebrate good design from the inside out.”
For those of you living under a rock, Jessica Hische is a designer, letterer, illustrator, and self-described “avid internetter,” not to mention a former GDUSA Person to Watch. I pretty much want everything she creates but these iPhone cases are calling to me right now and they make a perfect gift for any type lover or design aficionado. Each white case brilliantly displays a colorful letter from Jessica’s Daily Drop Cap project in which she created a new illustrative letter each day. Clearly, she never sleeps since she worked her way through the alphabet a total of twelve times. For this collaboration she chose to feature her “2nd Alphabet” but be sure to check all of them out here.
The iPhone Cases can be purchased at uncommon, 34.95 each
