Grotesk
Brooklyn, New York
How does a Swiss-born, Belgian-trained graphic designer end up doing t-shirts for Spike Lee, collaborating with New York graffiti vandals, and earning a Ph.D in vintage American sports uniforms?

Kimou Meyer, aka Grotesk, arrived in New York at precisely the moment when the new downtown art scene spilled over into stores, products and brands. Over fifteen years, Kimou worked with or for almost all the key players in that ever-changing game, drawing on his classical training and fresh eyes on the city to develop an iconic graphic language and style. Still living and working in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, Kimou now divides his time between family, running his co-owned creative agency, Doubleday & Cartwright, and making art under the Grotesk pseudonym.
