AIGA Charlotte is proud to welcome renown designer Jon Contino to the Queen City. Jon is a born-and-bred New Yorker. He talks like one, he acts like one, and most importantly, he designs like one. He is the founder and creative director of Jon Contino Studio, and over the past two decades, he has built a massive collection of award-winning graphic-design work for high-profile clients such as Nike, 20th Century Fox, and Sports Illustrated. He has also received some of the industry’s most prestigious honors, including a Decoration & Design Building Stars of Design award, a Clio Key Art Award, a Cannes Lion award, and an ADC Young Guns award.
Throughout all of this, he has gone to design hell and back, facing obstacles like fear, self-doubt, and bad luck. He recently chronicled many of these stories in a new book, Brand By Hand, which explores his lifelong devotion to the guts and grime of New York and cementing his biggest artistic inspirations, from hardcore music to America’s favorite pastime. In his book, and in his talk, he’ll be sharing how he has taken a passion for pen and ink and turned it into an expanding empire of clients, merchandise, and artwork.
