Alex Trochut was born in 1981 in Barcelona, Spain. After completing his studies at Elisava Escola Superior de Disseny, Alex established his own design studio in Barcelona before relocating to New York City. Through his design, illustration and typographic practice he has developed an intuitive way of working that has resulted in his expressive visual style.
For Alex, typography functions on two hierarchical levels. First, there is the image of the word we see; reading comes secondary. As a designer, Alex focuses on the potential of language as a visual medium, pushing language to its limits so that seeing and reading become the same action and text and image become one unified expression.
Alex currently lives and works in Brooklyn.
Mixing styles and genres and drawing equally from pop culture, street culture, fashion and music, Alex has created design, illustration and typography for a diverse range of clients: Nike, Adidas, Foot Locker, Oreo, Audi, The Rolling Stones, MAC Cosmetics, Katy Perry, IBM, Transport for London, BBC, Camper Shoes, Coca-Cola, Pepsi, Fila, Puma, The Guardian, The New York Times, Time Magazine and many others.Sorry, nothing to list.
