Exocet is based on primitive Greek and Roman stone carving. Renaissance type has been a huge source of inspiration for contemporary typographers but the more primitive work, particularly from Ancient Greece, has a unique under-appreciated beauty. In a conscious effort to avoid revival or pastiche, these ancient letterforms were reinterpreted as a visual language for today. Exocet has become one of our most recognisable and well-used fonts, appearing on everything from food packaging to video games. Exocet now features support for Cyrillic and Central European languages. Exocet is named after the French-built anti-ship missile. It is a name that reveals the danger of language – the possibility to soothe or vilify with words, to start war or create peace. It hints at the violence possible with a simple rearrangement of the alphabet.
