Rochester Illustrator & Graphic Designer Ron Brancato is the featured artist at the Mendon Public Library this month. This showing of his work reflects his Retro Rochester print series inspired by his appreciation for local architecture and his enjoyment of vintage typography and illustration. Ron’s work typically combines hand drawn and digital art to create the effects he desires. The typography he creates is inspired by his early years hand-lettering signs.
Early in his life, Ron desired to make a career out of art and after three years of college he attended Graphic Careers in 1979, a one-year commercial art school located in Rochester, NY. He immediately launched a sign painting business after graduating in 1980, taking time along the way to build his design and illustration portfolio. After a few years lettering signs, he went freelance as a graphic designer/illustrator and continues doing so today in a full-time capacity for corporate clients as well as pursuing his personal art work.
