Jess DePaul

Jess is a designer based in Chicago, Illinois where she received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design from Columbia College Chicago in 2016. 

Having always had a love for working with her hands, textiles, and typography, she has since been finding more ways to bring these three together. This exploration began by simply tracing classic typefaces and has moved to hand stitching entire sets of lyrics. She especially loves the unique handwriting that develops out of thread and the amount of detailed work that goes into each piece she creates.

She is currently working on the development of her fashion and art collective, “THANKYOUFORKILLING”, where alongside her two creative counterparts she works on embroidering original writings and other embellishments to a variety of custom made garments.
