Looking for the Quake Type font with the O's with the cross inside.  Not the one with the wierd Q, but the one in Quake II (I think).

Please let me know, I've been looking for this one forever!

Mail it to me at biggsung@anji.smhall.org - or tell me whence I can get it.

Thanks!

I already have this one.  Looking for the one with the O's with the crosses in em.  Go to ActiveGS.com.au for an example, inside the red halfmoon.

Thanks!

The font you are after is called Exocet, and is published by Emigre digital type foundry, it was designed by Jonathan Barnbrook, 1991, it comes in light and heavy weights, I have a Mac version hanging around somewhere, I'm not sure if it is available for PC, but you can convert a mac one using metapro. you can purchase the font through Atomictype, London. tel: 0181 964 9754

Hope this helps, I'll try to find my mac version and double check

The font used on the page you told me about is Exocet from emigre. Why did you reject my answer? is it because I didn't E-mail you the font? That as you know is piracy and as I am a graphic designer who designs typefaces occasionally I cannot and will not condone the piracy of fonts. The font is available for purchase and will cost about $25, not alot atall. They will E-mail the font straight away and you can get on with what you need to do.
