THERE’S A LOT OF DISCUSSION AND RECOGNITION ABOUT SPANISH DESIGN today. And for good reason. Graphic design, industrial design and architecture is red hot, highly conceptual and innovative. Designers like Nani Marquina, Francesc Rifé and Alex Trochut are just a few individuals within this design vanguard.

Twenty-seven year old Alex Trochut of Barcelona is the grandson of Joan Trochut, a well-known mid-century typography designer. Alex has a client list as deep as his imagination, and his work is personified by lively, colorful, metamorphic, reflective, dripping and overlapping forms. His influences emerge through a keen understanding of popular culture, fine artists and kitsch. The result is a sexy and scrumptious blend of illustrative typography that is used and appreciated worldwide.
