Slanted in Stockholm: Our Polite Society

Slanted in Stockholm: Our Polite Society

Slanted Magazine #39—Stockholm

Author: Vicky Blake

When visiting Stockholm in the summer of 2021, we took a close look at the contemporary design scene. We were happy to meet great designers from the local creative scene, among them Our Polite Society!

In 2008, Our Polite Society was founded by Jens Schildt and Matthias Kreutzer. They worked with the Kunstverein Bielefeld, the Sandberg Institute, the Bauhaus Dessau, and also realized self initiated works like Our Form of Book (2016), The FACIT Model (2019), and Constant Change (2021). OPS teach at Rietveld (Amsterdam), Konstfack (Stockholm), and KABK (The Hague). Since 2017, they publish typefaces as OPS Type.

Our Polite Society’s work can be found in the Slanted Magazine #39—Stockholm. Additionally we shot a video interview to talk about their attitude and view of things. Take a look at our new issue and the video platform to encounter new ways of design thinking!
