real design for real people
Hello and welcome! My name is Jacy (pronounced “Jackie”) Corral and I am the face behind Hyssop Design, a graphic design and hand lettering studio in Los Angeles, California. I’m so glad you’re here!
After graduating from UCLA with a BA in Political Science/International Relations, I started my professional career in business development and gradually made my way over to marketing. Over the course of about a year, I taught myself the fundamentals of graphic design (mostly at the mercy of some generous friends and their personal projects – thanks, guys!!) It wasn’t long until I fell head over heals in love with design. I went from creating wedding invitations and other event materials to taking over in-house design at my company (and then hiring two more designers and adding Art Director to the list of cool things I get to do.) There I was able to create SO MANY awesome corporate brochures, trifolds, and publications; decks; infographics; website landing pages; tradeshow designs; and even full blown logos! What a thrill! I’ve since been honored to design for even more clients all over the world (seriously, Australia loves me.)
In 2013 I had an itch to get a pencil back in my hand (which hadn’t officially been there since an advanced art class in high school) – but I knew I missed it! I began writing down quotes and verses and ultimately “drawing” them in fun, quirky compositions. I realized I might be on to something… It was around this time that I discovered Jessica Hische’s (*angels sing*) Daily Drop Cap series and I was instantly inspired. (Holy moly is that woman talented!) I took on a daily lettering challenge and once again fell head over heals in love with design – this time handmade! In the past two years I have worked hard to learn various hand lettering and calligraphy styles and incorporate them into digital graphic design (my very, very favorite kinds of projects – weeee!) Now I find myself in this awesome, fantastic, often unbelievable world creating modern, sophisticated design for amazing clients. From corporate and not-so-corporate branding to elegant hand lettering and calligraphy, my creative juices cannot be stopped. Up next: I would love to learn more about web and interactive design. Stay tuned!
CLIENTS | I cannot say enough good things about the incredible people I’ve had the opportunity to work with. The breadth of industries and services is wonderfully staggering – I’ve worked with corporate consulting firms, community leaders, non-profits, schools, security experts, doctors, bloggers, photographers, pilates instructors, retailers, wedding and event planners, moms and dads, brides and grooms (and their moms!), and even an offshore oil drilling company (for real). Each client presents a unique and thrilling challenge, and I can’t wait to meet my next one!
WHAT’S WITH THE NAME? | Hyssop is a really beautiful plant with ancient roots (heh) in Biblical history. I love its beauty and meaningfulness in my faith. OH – did you mean my real name? That was a cruel joke from my parents. (KIDDING!) It’s a unique contraction of my full name Jaclyn. 🙂 #themoreyouknow
