Planeta is the first font release by Swiss typographer Dani Klauser through Gestalten Fonts. Klauser invented Planeta to show the beauty of geometric simplicity. His almost scientific approach and his strict attention to the form of each character are visible in its constant thickness giving the font a graphic appeal. Drawing on the look of popular classic fonts from the 1920s, Planeta has been adapted for contemporary use. It is a clean-cut text font that is ideal for editorial design. The font also includes a special ‘Plakat’ weight, which has been designed specifically for application in large poster designs.
Planeta is the Bronze winner for Original Typeface in the 2009 European Design Awards.
