Hi! I'm Joseph Alessio.

I'm a typographic illustrator and animator— a letter lover, word-whisperer, compelling communicator, content creator. I make messages meaningful, fusing words and images to create a fresh form of communication.

I also art direct and write, doing double-duty as a copywriter for projects, and occasionally write on type, lettering & design for sites like Smashing Magazine, Stemmings and Tuts+.


Target, Patagonia, Hallmark, EBONY Magazine, Reach Records, Art Directors Club, MBooth, Macallan, ZOZI, Ghost OKC, Monotype, NAV, Society of Typographic Aficionados, Houstonia, Stereotonic, et cetera.


TypeCon 2015 // Video coming soon!


AIGA, TypeWorship, Lettercult Best Of, Typeverything, GDUSA, NFGraphics, Quipsologies, Abduzeedo, From Up North, Dribbble Replay, Typism Book, et cetera.

Work of interest:

Dimensional type, experimental type, motion-oriented and/or for-broadcast/film typography, typographic installations and murals, album art, editorial lettering, logotypes. Travel opportunities will receive priority consideration.
