Swiss type designer Hans Eduard Meier and Linotype began a collaboration in 1995 to produce an extensive revision and expansion of Meier's popular Syntax™ font family. The drawings Meier had done half a century earlier for the original font provided the philosophical direction for the revision. Shape alterations that had formerly been necessary for hot metal and photo-typesetting machines were discarded. Several new weights from Light to Black were added - including Old style Figures, special x-height figures, small caps, and italics. Design details were made consistent throughout all the weights, and graceful new characters were added. Despite its solid foundation in Renaissance letterforms, Meier's unusual approach of interpreting these forms as a monoline sans serif typeface caused the stodgier typographers to raise their eyebrows when Syntax was first released in 1968. Today, Syntax has the distinction of being not only a recognized modern classic, but also a consistent bestseller. Linotype Syntax™ was released in 2000 and is part of the , a series created to serve the needs of professionals by providing the highest quality typographic solutions. With its enduring vitality and legible bearing, Syntax is a ready communicator in corporate design, graphic design, and publishing applications.
