About Shock and Awe Tomahawk
Shock and Awe is a family of two typefaces drawn from lettering that has been at the centre of major historical events. Enola Gay is based upon nose art from the bomber that dropped the first atomic bomb in 1945. Tomahawk is based upon the fuselage lettering of the original General Dynamics Tomahawk cruise missile. Tomahawk missiles were introduced into military service in the 1970s and have been deployed by US and UK ‘coalition’ forces in a number of conflicts. While the source material is controversial, these have been developed in order to stimulate discussion about the ethics of creating graphics for such use and how the significance of letterforms change once their origin is known.
