Our Polite Society is a studio for graphic design, type design and typographic research based in Amsterdam and Stockholm. It was founded in 2008 by Jens Schildt (SE) and Matthias Kreutzer (D) after their studies at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy Amsterdam and the Jan van Eyck Academy Maastricht.
Our Polite Society have produced works, among others, for Bauhaus Dessau, the University of Stockholm, Sandberg Instituut Amsterdam, the New Institute Rotterdam, Malmö Konsthall and Internationale Bauausstellung (IBA). Their self-initiated work investigates how typographic form mirrors social phenomena, and how it relates to ideology and the distribution of knowledge. Since 2017 they are publishing typefaces under the imprint Our Polite Society Type.
