PTL Roletta is a comprehensive round family consisting of a sans and a slab variant, combining functionality and playfulness. Originally designed for the use on screen, the typeface works equally well as a text face on paper. While Roletta’s round shapes are discreet and barely visible at small sizes, they give the typeface its distinctive character with many refined details when used at display sizes. With five weights per style, including caps and italics, PTL Roletta Sans and Slab are excellent companions, well-suited for a wide range of text uses. The OpenType version includes many advanced layout features with various figure sets, alternate characters and geometric symbols. The basic TrueType version contains the normal range of characters.
PTL Roletta also comes with a set of six ornament fonts, offering an endless range of decorative composites and patterns. All ornament fonts play with the notion of roundness: either dotted ornaments, circular forms and outlines or roundish floral shapes.
In 2007 the betaversion of PTL Roletta was chosen as main typeface for the typography special edition of Eye Nr. 64, Vol. 16, summer issue. In 2009 PTL Roletta Sans was chosen by the design studio Weiss-heiten/Berlin as the corporate typeface for the German year in Vietnam 2010. For this purpose all diacritical marks of the vietnamese alphabet were drawn and a new light version was especially designed for the accompanying logotype. PTL Roletta will be extended with more family members.
