Orcus is a brand of hot sauces created with themes of the underworld and blackletter scripts in mind. After exploring the history of blackletter, I was able to create my own variation of a more modern blackletter typeface used for the Orcus logo. The name Orcus comes from a name for the god of the underworld and is accompanied by heavily stylized photographs to mimic illustrations often seen in pair with blackletter type. The photographs provide structure to the design of the label and vary from flavor to flavor.
