Type maestro Jon Contino knows exactly where he wants to go and isn’t at all afraid of putting the hours in to get there. He’s the kind of boy your mum wished you would hang out with, in the hope that his admirable work ethic would rub off on to you. Claiming that “as many hours as I can stay awake, is as many that I’ll work” he is not scared of immersing himself in his craft and even with long days of drawing under his belt, he still manages to keep his standards A+.

Watching Contino draw effortlessly in this neat film by Kevin Steen, you can see why he’s the go-to man for hand rendered typography. With an ever growing list of clients and ventures, his grab-everything-possible-as-inspiration mindset is working excellently for him and keeping his work memorable.
