Here are some statements about Dan Cassaro’s work: Dan Cassaro is an excellent hand-letterer. Dan Cassaro makes awesome illustrations. Dan Cassaro knocks up posters based on Bruce Springsteen lyrics that look freakin’ sweet. Dan Cassaro’s work makes me want to up sticks and move to America for good. Dan Cassaro hasn’t improved at all since we last featured his work.
Of course that last one’s a load of nonsense. Dan’s managed to move his practice on leaps and bounds since last we checked in, increasingly bringing 3D elements into play on the front cover of The New York Times Magazine and searing his type into large pieces of timber for Field and Stream. Of course he’s still maintaining that good old-fashioned powerful retro type sensibility that we know and love him for but this fresh experimentation is real nice.
