SyysScript is the revival of a strong Carelian personality.
My aunt Katri from Kontupohja had a very kind but also energetic character, and her handwriting is a mirror of it. I was fascinated by a few sentences she had written on a postcard inviting me to go mushrooming, and I decided to make them the starting point for a typeface dedicated to her. The name “SyysScript” is Finnish and translates as “Script of Autumn”, Katri’s favorite season – harvesting time, time for collecting the fruits of nature in the forest and the garden.

SyysScript has strong visual attributes but is easily readable. The font’s many OpenType features and a bundle of alternates for each character give texts written in SyysScript a very natural look.

Two long awaited newcomers, Syysscript FeltTip and Syysscript FeltTip Eco recently joined the family. They are bolder and softer than the previous styles but have the same positive, lighthearted feel.
