A FEW WORDS WITH…JON CONTINO
We’ve been longtime fans of Jon Contino, and his signature style of hand-drawn lettering. So, we were thrilled to collaborate with this self-proclaimed Alphastructaesthetitologist, and put his vintage-meets-modern aesthetic towards some of the summer’s most action-oriented words.
Jon’s work mirrors his badass self, combining elements of old-school New York, edgy street art and early 20th century typesetting. This melting pot of influences has birthed an inimitable style that’s currently in high demand, and he’s lent his hand to everything from boutique apparel design to international alcohol ads. His work clearly runs the gamut, and delivers in a big way every time.
So, we knew he’d be perfect for the life-in-the-fast-lane week of Riding, as well as the edgier days of Jamming (he is a musician after all) and Competing weeks.
