Grotesk interview

Kimou Meyer aka Grotesk is the prototype of the Swiss graphic designer who made it big in New York. The 38-year-old Genevan came to New York twelve years ago and has become the go to guy when it comes to streetwear and graphic design. His keen style and flavor are conspicuously stamped on everything he does for friends at Alife, Sixpack, 5Boro, or his private sketchbook. We met with Kimou in the backyard of his agency in Brooklyn to talk about New York, Kung Fu and American work ethic. He is so sought after that he hardly had time to send us his stuff until one day before printing. Never on schedule but always on time!
