Our Polite Society Type is a project by Our Polite Society, a graphic design studio based in Amsterdam and Stockholm, formed in 2008 by Jens Schildt and Matthias Kreutzer. Early on in our collaboration, we began designing type for specific projects, usually for limited use. Our Polite Society Type is an attempt to finalize some of our favourite designs of the past years and make them available to others.
