David Keshavjee & Julien Tavelli

DAVID KESHAVJEE and JULIEN TAVELLI , two Swiss graphic designer, first collaborated at ECAL, Lausanne when they were student:

We were not good in school,” they explain. “In Switzerland there were a lot of exhibition openings with free alcohol and good food.”… .We developed our own tools. First we worked on a program that can automatically generate a whole font (we never use serif fonts). Then with a font developed in the program, we made woodcut letters. We were interested in the process, not just the finished product.”

I really like the way how they combine manual and automatic processes in typography, layout and print, resulting in a unique identity achievable only outside the limitation of “traditional” methods.
