    Jon Contino is an artist I have admired for a while. From New York, and influenced by New York, his style is instantly recognisable. Much of Mr Contino’s work revolves around typography. Combining traditional techniques with digital tools he has bridged the gap between traditional and modern.

    Mr Contino’s work is not the case of making something new look old, it is quite the opposite, taking the lost art of hand-drawn lettering and making it relevant in today’s market. He does it so well that he has become one of the most sought after designers. So much so it would probably be quicker to list all the clients and company he hasn’t worked with. But to give you an idea of how long his client list here are but a few:

    20th Century Fox, AIGA, AT&T, American Express, Coca-Cola, ESPN, Ford, Harley Davidson, Harper Collins, IBM, Jack Daniel’s, Jameson Whiskey, Kellogg’s, Random House, The Washington Post, Dockers, H&M, JCPenney, Lacoste, New Balance, Nike, Obey Clothing, and Victoria’s Secret.

    Not keeping busy enough producing client work, Mr Contino somehow found time to set up his own menswear’s company, Contino Brand and Co-Found CXXVI Clothing Company.

    To keep up-to-date with Jon Contino’s work, check out his website and follow him on twitter.

    Miguel kindly got in touch with us via our official facebook fan page and boy are we glad that he did.

    His rather surrealistic work is a joy to look at. Although its predominantly illustration it does have a graphical vibe. His good use of negative spaces, typography and layout make him a fantastic modern editorial illustrator. Although he studied for a degree in graphic design he is now taking a masters in illustration and animation. We look forward to seeing more from this fellow.

    I love these zany vector creations by Italian graphic designer and illustrator iThinkp.! The website is full of mad characters, and I particularly like the one in the footer (a little runaway blob holding up an arm which is a holding up a pencil)! From looking at all the interesting projects on show, I can see that iThinkp.! brings a bit of fun to everything. And how about those bright colours!

    Antonio is a self-taught designer/illustrator from Brazil. He has several skills, including traditional and digital techniques and has a great handle on typography. His photo-manipulations are incredible and at times feel like illustrations. I love the way he manipulates foreshortening perspectives and exaggerates physical elements in his work. See more on his website.

    Jing Zhang is an illustrator, typographer and designer from southern China and currently living in trendy London. Her infographics are exceptional, and her experiments with 3D illustrated type are very powerful. I cannot express enough how inspiring her portfolio of work is, so visit her website or Behance to drool over the rest of her portfolio.
