Statement

Jenny Kessler is an illustrator, designer, and lettering artist based in Philadelphia and New York. In her work, she has a fondness for mid-century stylings, bold lettering, and bright color palettes, influenced by a love of printmaking and vintage imagery. Though she originally intended to create a mural for her thesis, she pivoted during the second half of the semester to create a series of vintage postcards entitled "Postcards From A Pandemic." This project was inspired by the concept of writing postcards not from a specific location, but instead from a moment in time or history. The device of the vacation postcard was also used to highlight the anxiety and stress of the current global crisis.
