About the Presenters
Joe Quesada wears many creative hats, as both an acclaimed writer-artist and the Chief Creative Officer of Marvel Entertainment - the world's largest and most dynamic comics publisher. In this role Joe is the steward of such legendary characters as The Avengers, Spider-Man, and The X-Men.
With his transition into the position of Chief Creative Officer, Joe's tenure as Editor-in-Chief recently drew to a close after 10 successful years - the longest term since Stan Lee himself. Under Quesada's guidance, Marvel underwent a creative boom and became home to the comic industry's greatest talents, which continues to hold true today. He now brings this same vision in his new role to the whole of Marvel Entertainment, creatively overseeing the worlds of film, animation, television, as well as publishing.
Alex Trochut was born 1981 in Barcelona, Spain. Trochut’s illustrations, designs and typography take the modern notion of minimalism and flip it on its side. His work philosophy is “more is more”. He is driven by a desire to constantly evolve which may be seen in his eclectic and prolific body of work.
On graduation from Elisava Escola Superior de Disseny, Barcelona he worked at Toormix and Vasava design studios in Barcelona before establishing his own studio from where he works for clients including: Nike, The Rolling Stones, Adidas, BBC, Nixon, British Airways, Coca-Cola, The Guardian, Non Format, Wieden + Kennedy, Saatchi & Saatchi, BBH, Fallon, and Beautiful Decay.In 2011 his monograph, More is More was published. It documents his professional work whilst revealing his personal thoughts and listing his influences from the world of art and design.
