Tomorrow!!! I will be the keynote speaker at @creativesouthga, and even though it’s too late to get tickets, you can still live stream the talks from the comfort of your own home! My talk entitled “FIGHT YOUR BRAIN” starts around 5pm, so if you want to catch it, go to creativesouth.com and pick up a live stream pass!!!
My man Brian Davis, owner of @woodensleepers talks a little bit about the identity I designed for the brand. Check out the whole video on the Wooden Sleepers page. He tells a great story about how the store came together and what it took to get to this point. Really inspiring stuff, especially for people looking to start something of their own!!!
It has literally been years in the making, but I’m finally pleased to officially announce the release of my first book, BRAND BY HAND on @abramsbooks!!! We started this project back in 2015 and it’s something I wanted to make really special. The original plan was to literally include everything I’ve ever done, but there aren’t enough pages in modern books to allow such chaos. Seriously though, this book features select projects all the way back to 2002, short essays about my inspiration and where it comes from, all of the things that keep pushing me, stories about clients, behind the scenes, and all the work related to those topics. It’s a beast and I hope you love looking at it as much as I loved making it. It’s always been a dream of mine to have a monograph published of my work and something I thought MIGHT have happened after I died if I was remotely good enough for anyone to care, but thanks to @llagj and @abramsbooks, they made it all a reality and a beautiful one at that. Pre-order now at the link in my profile or just search “Jon Contino” on Amazon! Thank you everyone for the support for all these years!!!
Wow, this record came out five years ago. So much has happened since I sketched up the first concept for Cost of Living. Definitely one of my favorite projects for one of my favorite bands @incendiaryhc on one of my favorite record labels @closedcasketactivities. Love that I got to work on this one! LIHC FOREVER
Since it’s Oscar night, here’s some relevant stuff to look at. I worked with @elskeleto and @20thcenturyfox on three movies that popped up in the ceremony this year: Logan, Ferdinand, and The Greatest Showman. It’s always amazing to see these things go so far after doodling around before anyone knows anything about them. These were some logo comps and theater posters for The Greatest Showman. #oscars
That American flag had an entirely less sinister meaning to it when I first made it years ago. Now it seems oddly prophetic.
