Trikko is a Spanish based brand with the brothers Moad and Ibrahim having Morrocan heritage. Together they’ve built a brand with a loyal community behind it selling out multiple drops. They've been able to leverage short form content as their primary marketing tactic to build what they have today.

Everybody knows a Trikko video by the consistent motifs seen in the videos. the AI voice, the editing style with quick cuts and sound effects, the decorated room and Moad in his signature mask with his animated energy. These aspects complement the storytelling as they all command attention and become synonymous with the brand after you see it repetitively. The style has even gone on to get copied by multiple other people.
