Martin Grasser’s bona fides as an artist and designer already have a place in the annals of internet history, with his blue bird Twitter logo an identifiable mark of one of the pillars of social media. His latest effort sidesteps from logotypes to the typographic, a font comprised entirely of colored dots called Color Dot.
Imagined as a “true universal language”, the Color Dot Font replaces each Latin character with circles of color (e.g. “a” is converted into a blue circle, “t” into a yellow circle, and so forth).
Available as a TTF file, the font can be installed and used on any computer operating system. Grasser also created the option to install a Firefox plug-in to transform any website with the Color Dot Font, turning any bit of negative news into a vibrant Morse code of color.
