Jon Contino is an illustrator, creative and New York native who has developed an iconic and instantly recognizable style. His Americana influence and New York roots give his work a sense of authenticity, timelessness and just the right amount of grittiness.
What makes Contino so unique is his process and the imperfections that accompany it. He starts with paper and a sketch and from there he scans his designs into illustrator. However, what is special is that he leaves the components that make his illustrations human. He does not make every shape straight, perfectly format all of his letters or erase every stray pencil mark. The result is something real, something authentic and something memorable.
Contino’s talent has not gone unnoticed. He works with niche brands such as Matix and Flip and also some giants such as Nike, Miller, Sports Illustrated and even author Stephen King. His work has the style, character and detail to make him an illustrator that will remain important and timeless.
