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.
October is available in three logical widths, which offer complete typographic palette for the most demanding designers. The Condensed and Compressed versions solve setting long words and sentences next to short words set in the regular width version of November.
