“If I'm not competing with something, if I'm not trying to be better, I'm constantly chasing after some kind of antagonist to make me a better designer and a better person.”
Our Favorite Alphastructaesthetitologist (typographic illustrator) is still killing it and we’re glad to see that he’s in it for the long haul. Jon has the work ethic of an ox and the enthusiasm of a kitten on cat nip.
His old-meets-new Americana aesthetic has had us, clients, and even his many imitators swooning.
When he’s not producing custom hand lettering for clients, he’s busy running menswear brand, CXXVI Clothing Co., as Co-Founder, Art Director, Designer, Illustrator and Relations Manager. It seems Mr. Contino is one hard working, talented and busy dude.
