Jon Contino has spent more than two decades elevating pen and ink into an award-winning portfolio of graphic design work for high-profile clients and his own brands. Whether you’re talking about his clothing work for CXXVI, beer cans for 21st Amendment Brewing or the Word. Notebooks The Standard Memorandum, Contino has a style all his own. The upcoming Brand by Hand: Blisters, Calluses, and Clients: A Life in Design is a graphic-design retrospective that documents the work, career and artistic inspiration of the influential designer and artist through the lens of everything that made him who he is today. Come for the unique style, the minimalist illustrations and the unmistakable hand-lettering; stay for the story of how he got where he is today. Contino’s Brand by Hand: Blisters, Calluses, and Clients: A Life in Design will be available in hardcover and Kindle formats at the end of October.
