Alexis Taïeb, AKA Tyrsa, is a Paris based designer and illustrator focusing on homemade, custom typography.
In 1999 Tyrsa discovered graffiti, and his love for typography instantly began to blossom and became a natural guide into a new profession. He graduated from Gobelins – A school of applied arts, print and digital media – in 2007 and began working as a freelancer focusing on print and web design.
More recently Tyrsa collaborated with Air Jordan and created a custom illustration and typography piece featuring Michael Jordan quote: “I’ve never lost a game I just ran out of time”. The process was filmed by directors Axel Morin & Julien Capelle and alongside more street and basketball footage a video was created to coincide with and celebrate the release of Air Jordan V Retro Grape.
Not only is this a great collaboration, I was also fortunate enough to get my hands on a pair of the Jordan’s celebrated here! Don’t forget to check out the video below!
