Creative Jessy Nite is opening the Nite Writer, a typographic studio dedicated to hand-lettering, type and illustration. Launching at NiteWriter.co, Nite has produced an interactive pan and scan portfolio that allows viewers to explore the gamut of her hand-drawn typeface and design capabilities. Best known for her fine and public art projects, Nite Writer was conceived as an extension of the artist’s sassy aesthetic, catering to the palette of art directors and commercial clients. Nite is in constant production, creating project-specific, bespoke materials in a range of mediums and scale from identity and brand development, to custom artwork and experiential campaigns.
“For NiteWriter.co, I wanted a simple and fun way for people to interact with the large body of commercial work I have been producing over the last few years,” said Nite. “By presenting the studio side of my practice, I’m opening up to new opportunities and more collaborators across disciplines and industries. Nite Writer’s focus is, of course, custom lettering and illustration, but we have the capacity and experience to complete such a variety of projects that I look forward to seeing where our clients and ideas will take us.”
Infatuated with radical 80s skate lettering, Dadaism, fashion, hot-rod culture, modernism and graphic novel styles, Nite disarms viewers with familiar imagery, leaving them free to interpret her visuals for themselves. In a fall commission for MIAMI Magazine’s Anniversary event, Nite designed more than 200 “Werd Magnets” where guests mixed and matched hand-drawn words into sentences loaded with innuendo and vice. More recently, during Art Basel Miami Beach week 2012, the artist created a kaleidoscope installation that provided pedestrians with a portal into a world of candy-coated jewels, trapezoids and quaaludes.
