Alex Trochut Talks Typography and Illustration With The Mill
Wednesday, October 10, 2012
Illustrator and typographer Alex
Trochut was our guest of honor for the second installment of
The Mill Lecture Series this month. Currently based in Barcelona,
we were thrilled to catch him on a short trip through New York
after his presentation at the Offf Festival in Mexico City.
The Mill NY team enjoyed an inspiring and entertaining evening as
Alex presented a showcase of imagery and individuals that have
inspired him as well as his portfolio of work ranging from album
covers for The Rolling Stones to print ads for Absolut and Adidas,
to editorial work for New York Magazine, The Guardian, Creative
Review and Wired.
Check out Art Director Tim Haldeen's conversation with the
29-year-old talent as they discuss designing typography across
different languages, digital versus analogue design, and what
inspired Alex's distinctive liquid style (think: lava lamps plus
Garbage Pail Kids with a side of skate art and graffiti).
