About Jon Contino

Jon Contino Studio is owned and operated by Creative Director Jon Contino.

Jon’s pretty handy with a pen and paper. He’s scribbled and sketched for some companies that you’ve probably heard of.

Over the past two decades, his designs, typography, and illustrations have graced magazine covers, t-shirts, album jackets, murals, food trucks, movie posters, websites, and national ad campaigns, to name a few.

During that time, his peers have had a lot of nice things to say about him. He’s even taken home a few awards.

In addition to running the studio, Jon also designs apparel catering to the well-dressed gentleman. He’s the Founder & Creative Director of Contino Brand menswear and accessories company, as well as Co-Founder & Creative Director of CXXVI Clothing Company.

Jon is personally involved in every project that comes through the studio, and is currently accepting commissions.

He is inspired by his wife Erin, his daughter Fiona, and his home state of New York.
