Originally designed for the European annual Illustration Now, Exocet is based on primitive Greek stone carving. Many typographers talk about the beauty of Renaissance type, but the more primitive work, particularly from Ancient Greece, had a beauty that we wanted to represent to the world. In a conscious effort to avoid revival or pastiche Virus reinterpreted these ancient letteforms to be used as a visual language for today. Exocet is now available with OpenType versions which feature support for Cyrillic and Central European languages.
