Alex Trochut

Change for the Letter
Posted by Ole Wagner—10/2010

Illustrator and typographer Alex Trochut synthesizes illustration and lettering like no other. The expressive, richly ornamented typography he creates ooze fluidity in which movement is practically palpable. One of the most sought after talents, he has created knockout work for the likes of Wired and The New York Times as well as clients including Adidas and Coca-Cola. We met the 29-year-old, Barcelona-based whiz kid at his studio to talk about visuals, identities, and the legitimacy of legibility.
