Monday Morning Playlist: Jon Contino

This weeks installment of the Monday Morning Playlist features
Jon Contino. A graphic designer at heart, Jon co-founded boutique design studio Onetwentysix with good friend Matt Gorton. The design duo more recently expanded into the world of men's apparel with the launch of CXXVI this past fall. The studio and brand focuses on combining old world aesthetics with the forward thinking of a great metropolis.

Perusing Jon's portfolio one cannot help but be mesmerized by his ability to create stunning custom typography. In this day and age, where many designers focus on the power of technology, it is refreshing to see graphic design transcend the computer. His typography has been sought after by the likes of Franco Shade, Johnny Cupcakes, Casualty Killers and the Brooklyn Circus with
Letter Cult recently recognizing Jon's work as one of the Top 10 designs of 2009.

So sharpen that HB, grab a fresh stake of paper and enjoy today's Monday Morning Playlist.

Here's to a happy Monday. Thanks Jon for the time. Download link.
