FUXIT is a typeface designed to commemorate the many deaths, exits and losses experienced during 2016. The typeface's design is based on vernacular lettering found in a Liverpool City Centre carpark on the day of the EU Referundum result, identifying the direction of "exit" in an appropriately warped manner. Yes, a new typeface is not the answer to the world's problems. However I hope it is seen as a positive addition, and that you enjoy using it – especially to shout loudly into your own personal echo chamber. The font features uppercase characters, numbers and a variety of Symbols, marks, punctuation and latin Glyphs (naturally). You can download it here for desktop and web use.

The typeface is used exclusively in an accompanying publication, which draws together the peculiarly 2016 phenomenon of celebrity deaths, depressing statistics from the war in Syria, and the mourning associated with political change, in one typographic obituary.
