Alex Moshakis

Hello, I’m a writer from the UK. My writing has appeared in Esquire, The Guardian, British GQ, The New York Times Magazine, and T: The New York Times Style Magazine, where I held a position reporting on cultural events across the UK and Europe.

I’m currently an editor at the Observer Magazine, the Guardian’s Sunday magazine, where I write and edit interviews and features. I’m the former editor of the art and design website  It’s Nice That, and a former designer. I’ve also edited two books on design, including a study of the Japanese designer Masamichi Katayama, for the German publisher Gestalten.

I’m at work on a book about Greece and grief.
