Virus- not just something that attacks your computer.
Jonathan Barnbrook and Barnbrook Design founded Virus in 1997. Fonts are experimental and express the sprit of the age and reflect the language we use today.
“Language is a virus from outerspace”–comes from William Burroughs and Neville Brody’s statement, that style is a virus.–Also a computer virus.
