Newspeak(1997)

Newspeak is based on architectural forms from Stalinist Russia and the Cyrillic alphabet, letterforms which show a decadent visual language with a sinister political undertone.

The name Newspeak comes from the novel 1984 by George Orwell. Newspeak is a language invented so that people cannot express themselves or think in a way outside the political doctrine enforced by the dictatorship in power. The poster for its release originally featured a picture of Tony Blair - there is an obvious connection between newspeak and the way that the British Labour Party consistently tries to manipulate and control Tony Blair's image in the media, pretending that their policies are socialist when we know much of what they do fundamentally goes against socialist principles.

You can now buy Newspeak Complete as part of the Orwellian Nightmare package which also includes Doublethink complete.
