Patternbank have a major crush on Contino’s work and not surprisingly, he has garnered considerable attention for his unique approach to design utilising hand-drawn lettering and typographic illustration in conjunction with a modern, yet minimalistic sensibility. He has received numerous accolades for his fusion of old and new world aesthetics and continues to influence modern trends in graphic design and apparel design. Jon resides in Brooklyn with his wife Erin where he works not only as a freelance illustrator, but also as Co-Founder and Creative Director of menswear brand CXXVI Clothing Company (see our post on their Spring 2012 T Shirt Collection). The Great Discontent have just done a great post on him which you can read here or check out his website for more inspiring work.
