DD dot — Bespoke Display Typeface
Using exclusively perfect regular circles and straight lines, the design of the minimalistic and geometric DD dot sans-serif font evokes the memorable typographic work of the Bauhaus designer Herbert Bayer (1900–1985). DD dot reimagines Bayer’s avant-garde approach done with his Universal typeface in 1925.
