About Polydot Font Family

Polydot is an experimental Font, built following its own rules. It has interesting letter shapes, making it a perfect choice for creative packaging and magazine design. At the same time it makes a beautiful, neat but vivid text pattern when used in smaller sizes: Use it for children’s books, food and beverage, cosmetics or health topics.

Each Glyph is based on at least one dot on the body line, and has up to two more on the lower case level and the ascender level. Since they have the same size and are on the same height on all letters, no matter what weight and shape, these dots give a strong structure to the typeface, allowing for dynamic and easy letter shapes, inspired by brush strokes.

It’s not a hand font but it has the dynamics of one. It has no serifs but provides the structure and readability of a roman type. It has an extensive choice of weights, but it’s characteristic dots have the same size and it has the same tracking through all weights. Try it, it’s special.

About Christoph Reichelt

Dipl. Des. Christoph Reichelt, born in 1967 in Munich, is a thoroughbred Designer, for three decades now working on industrial products, buildings, vehicles, and printed stuff. Deep interest and basic knowledge in typography he gained from Philipp Luidl, chairman of the renowned tgm. His formal sensitivity got a tough training at Audi Design during his studies. With several years of practical experience in graphic design, he specialized in Corporate Design, creating e.g. the appearance of a private jet company, a soda maker, a manufacturer of high-end curtain rods, dietary supplements, and – for 20 years now – a manufacturer of industrial components. After creating several fonts for private and corporate use, he’s now going to present some extraordinary typeface designs to the public. True to the motto “Know the rules well, so you can break them effectively,” his designs are mainly obligated to rules of their own. Types with a twist, yet surprisingly usable, and as professional as you would expect.
