ABOUT







Irene Vlachou Type [Irene Vlachou]

Or Eirini Vlachou, b. 1981. Graduate of of Vakalo School of Art & Design in Athens and the University of Reading, where she earned the nickname Miss Fontlab before graduating there with a Masters in 2004. Type designer who used to be at POPtype in Athens, and now works in both Bristol, UK and Athens. From 2013 to 2019 she was senior designer and variable font expert at Type-Together. From January 2020 she is back to full time freelancing Greek and variable fonts. Her typefaces:

  • Prisma (2004). A typeface that covers both Latin and Greek.
  • Colvert Greek (2012, Typographies.fr). Colvert is a joint effort of Irene Vlachou, Jonathan Fabreguettes (Perez), Kristyan Sarkis and Natalia Chuvatin.
  • At Cannibal Fonts, she created the corporate typeface Ballisage Greek (2007), a Hellenization of Ballisage. With Panos Haratzopoulos of Cannibal, she also made the corporate typefaces Esquire Greek and Crank Greek (2004, for Esquire), and Amplitude and Franklin Antiqua Greek (2007, for Autobild).
  • Designer of Parmigiano Greek (2012-2014), as part of the larger Parmigiano Typographic System of Riccardo Olocco and Jonathan Pierini.
  • In 2017, in collaboration with Laurenz Brunner, she worked on the Greek counterpart of the Documentata exhibition identity font, Bradford Greek.
  • Since 2017 she has been participating in the Google Summer of Code on behalf of the Greek Open Source Community, as a mentor on the Greek expansion of the libre fonts Arima Madurai, Cantarell and Eczar.
  • In 2018, she published Stratos Greek at Production Type to complement Yoann Minet's Stratos from 2016.
  • In 2018 together with Emilios Theofanous and Frank Grießhammer she reworked the Greek set of Source Serif Pro.
  • At Type-Together she has engineered three variable fonts: Protipo, Portada and Bree.
  • In early 2019, her Unica77 Greek was released by Lineto, a design in progress for almost two years in collaboration with Christian Mengelt from Team'77, Unica's original designers.
  • In June 2019, together with Laurence Penney, she initiated the experimental project FauxFoundry, a webfont service offering fallback fonts, such that multiple scripts can be presented with reasonable fidelity to the web designer's intent, even when the primary font does not support those scripts. Currently working for Greek, thus providing Greek fallback fonts for fonts that do not contain Greek. The system takes measurements from Latin fonts that correspond with the set of parametric axes developed by Type Network.
