    Dan Cassaro: Occupy Wall Street

Seriously tasty letterforms from young jerk Dan Cassaro

Posted by James Cartwright,

Designer, illustrator and hand-lettering wunderkind Dan Cassaro (or Young Jerks, as he likes to be known) has been on our radar for some time now, ever since he picked up a much-coveted ADC Young Gun last September, but for some reason we’ve not shown his work on the site until now. Sorry Dan! Needless to say his inauguration into the ADC hall of fame was richly deserved as his portfolio testifies; project after project of carefully considered, immaculately-executed illustrative work for clients as varied as Deus ex Machina, an international custom cycle workshop, and the illustrators’ holy grail, The New York Times. When he’s not busy blowing minds with his vector skills, he still finds time to go back to basics, creating freehand murals and turning out gloriously inky screen prints from his one-man studio.
