Where the idea came from:

One day my girldfriend wore a black and white polka dotted sweater.

As we were watching a movie, I started connecting the dots and imaginarily
filling out the blanks with my finger. Could this be typography and what is the smallest
possible grid for a full 26 character alphabet with as low readability loss as possible?

I made a 3 by 3 square matrix and started creating the typeface.

As I progressed with this dogma it startet to remind me of both ancient glyphs and cryptography.

This is where the name originated.

‘Cryptography’

from Greek κρυπτός kryptós, “hidden, secret”; and γράφειν graphein, “writing”

Cryptography prior to the modern age was effectively synonymous with encryption,
the conversion of information from a readable state to apparent nonsense.

Cryptex Free Typeface

Cryptex is a conceptual typography experiment,
based on the idea of simplicity and bold geometry.
All letters are made of a tilted square 3 by 3 matrix.
