The ferociously brilliant type of Alexis Taib (Tyrsa)

Typography is an art like no other. It’s the backbone of most creative – just as important as layout, photography, illustration etc it is something most definitely to be celebrated.

In the football world, it’s a way of showing the mood and passion of a creative – it captures mood like nothing else.

Today, we’re celebrating the utterly heroic type by French wizard, Alexis Taib (Tyrsa).
