This is based on a number of different stencil typefaces although many of those styles of typefaces were sans serif typefaces. The curved rounded serifs adds an old, slightly more decorative look than a sans serif typeface.

Syzygy was an attempt to create a typeface of old style characters with a high contrast between thicks & thins and attractive curves, despite the inherent limitations of fonstruct’s available blocks. The end result is a highly readable typeface — even at smaller sizes — comprised entirely of straight lines. While the astronomical definition talks about alignment, the word “syzygy” more broadly means “the union of disparate or opposing object, ideas or concepts”. Thus, the name “syzygy” is meant to reference the merger between old-style letters and a modern, computer-driven design tool — truly a meeting of opposites.
