Jon Contino: Brooklyn Nets logo on The Fox Is Black
Art and design blog The Fox Is Black was so disappointed by the new Brooklyn Nets logo (designed by Jay-Z himself) that they asked Young Guns 9 winner Jon Contino to solve the problem with his old school design expertise. “I wanted to take the solid concept behind Jay-Z’s logo and run with it a little further. Over the years, I think I may have become more familiar with classic New York design than anyone. It’s been an obsession of mine and I could probably teach a four year course on it by now,” said Jon.
