ABOUT







Apostolos Syropoulos

Xanthi, Greece-based designer of the Greek type1 font family Phaistos (2004, with Stratos Doumanis). He also created the "oinuit" system, a set of Lambda (Omega LaTeX) typesetting tools for the Inuktitut language which comes bundled with the type 1 family Inuit (2002). In 2007, he published the Philokalia package, which includes a free Philokalia OpenType font developed with Ioannis Gamvets. It was specially made to print the Philokalia books. The UM Typewriter font family (2008, for OpenType fonts) is a monospaced font family that was built from glyphs from the CB Greek fonts, the CyrTUG Cyrillic alphabet fonts ("LH"), and the standard Computer Modern font family. Epi-Olmec (2008) is an Aztec dingbat font. In support of the Open Font Library, he created the rune font Icelandic (2008: this font includes most "magical" staves that have been used in Iceland. Original drawings from the Museum of Sorcery&Witchcraft). He also made Asana Math (2007), which references Young Ryu (2000) and Claudio Beccari (1997-1999).

In 2016, Pablo Garcia Risueño, Apostolos Syropoulos and Natalia Verges launched the free package SVR Symbols. The glyphs of this font are ideograms that have been designed for use in Physics texts. Some symbols are standard and some are entirely new.

Still in 2016, he designed the calligraphic Greek font Frederika2016 as an attempt to digitize Hermann Zapf's Frederika font. The font is the Greek companion of Virtuosa by the same designer.
