October is a geometric signage font with a soft corner terminal and friendly character suitable for complex signage and information display, as well as for packaging and branding projects. October’s round letter terminals were created by the rotary cutters of a CNC router. Changing the size of the cutters changed the stroke widths of the letterforms. The results were optically corrected to create a functional digital font family that works at a variety of medium to large text sizes.
