GAMUT is an exhibition by Julien Tavelli and David Keshavjee, also known as design duo Maximage. In recent years Maximage spearheaded Color Library, an ongoing study on colours, which is part of "Workflow," a research project on printing technologies led by ECAL (University of Art and Design Lausanne) and funded by HES-SO/University of Applied Sciences Western Switzerland.
A selection of publications by various designers and artists are on display, which were significantly altered or experimented with using this novel database and colour management solution. A publication made in collaboration with the London collective V.BLOCC will be launched at the opening.
Maximage, established in 2008 in Switzerland and currently based in London, works in the fields of corporate, type and editorial design. The studio's work is often connected with an innovative and sensitive attitude towards technology. Commissions include numerous collaborations with clients and institutions (Edition Patrick Frey, Federal Office of Culture, Kunsthalle Bern, Istituto Svizerro di Roma, etc.) and type design includes the Programme typeface, released in 2013 by Optimo Type Foundry. The duo were prize-winners at the Swiss Design Awards in 2009, 2011 and 2014.
