Louise Fili (born in New Jersey on April 12, 1951) is an Italian-American graphic designer who is “recognized for impeccable craftsmanship, elegant use of typography and designing with a passion and focus that is the envy of every designer”. An AIGA 2014 medalist, Fili was always passionate about handwritten type. From an early age, she enjoyed creating her own letterforms, and taught herself calligraphy. Over the years, she has designed close to 2,000 book jackets, “proving again and again that design doesn’t have to shout to be noticed”. Jessica Hische and John Passafiume both held a position as senior designer at Louise Fili Ltd. Fili is married to Steven Heller.
