Designed by Jonathan Barnbrook, Apocalypso is a dingbat font family. This typeface has two styles and was published by Barnbrook Fonts.

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.
