Letterer / Illustrator / Graphic Designer

Blanca Cortés is a lefty letterer, illustrator and graphic designer—originally from El Salvador 🇸🇻 and currently based in Chicago. She's been a proud member of AIGA since 2011.

After always feeling like she couldn't find the right fonts for her projects, Blanca fell in love with letters—and making them herself. On this episode, she details her creative journey as well as how artists (and their art) have the power to build an all-inclusive community that makes the world a better place to live.

Blanca was originally featured on On The Daily during National Hispanic Heritage Month 2018. Follow her @blancosiniestro and see more of her work at
