Apocalypso‘s portmanteau name is analogous to ‘fiddling while Rome burns’.
The pictograms and crosses are considered an art project more than a practical font, yet the crosses add decorative detailing to typographic layouts, while the pictograms can be used to presage calamitous events.
Published in 1997, a few years before the turn of the millennium, Apocalypso is both a document of the ideas of the time and a scarily prophetic vision of our dystopian present-day.
