Cassie Hester is interested in the manipulation of type and message. You can usually find her painstakingly making — and then methodically breaking — physical type. Hester received her BFA in Graphic Design from the University of Georgia and her MFA in Design/Visual Communications from Virginia Commonwealth University. Her typographic explorations have been featured in publications such as AIGA Eye on Design, Print, Graphis, eg Magazine, Metropolis, and Step Inside Design. She has presented her work at numerous international design exhibitions and conferences reaching from New York to New Zealand.
