Tony Dispigna

Tony Dispigna may be a very influential craftsman to today’s “throwback” design connoisseurs without many realizing. In 1969, shortly after graduating from Pratt, Tony joined forces at the legendary Lubalin Smith & Carnase. He has worked to produce notable classic typefaces like Lubalin Graph and Serif Gothic. Tony is currently a professor at Pratt and the New York Institute of Technology, and has also taught at SVA. Although much of Tony’s work is based on type, he also has a really good sense for creating wonderful logos, as you will see below.
