About Atypical

Atypical is an independent commercial type foundry initiated and operated by George Triantafyllakos (a.k.a. backpacker.gr) from the city of Thessaloniki, Greece. Its goal is to offer original text and display typefaces that are in line with current designers' needs and able to face contemporary design challenges and problems. Atypical fonts are available in a wide variety of styles, weights and languages, supporting more than 200 latin based languages, plus Greek (of course — εξάλλου, η δημιουργία πρωτότυπων ελληνικών γραμματοσειρών ήταν ίσως το βασικότερο κίνητρο για την δημιουργία του Atypical).
