Alexis Taïeb (aka Tyrsa) came upon his life's calling early: as a teen growing up in the streets of Paris, where his unrelenting creativity found an outlet through graffiti. His passion for lettering and typography continued to evolve at the Gobelins School in Paris. Upon graduation in 2007 he quickly amassed an impressive body of work as a freelance graphic designer specializing in handmade typography. His esteemed client list includes the likes of Nike, Moët & Chandon, Jordan Brand and Carhartt, while his portfolio expresses the duality of lettering as both an aesthetic and functional art form. It's a delicate balancing act, one that can only be maintained through mastery of one's craft.
