@jimhv: Thank you for your feedback. This is still a work in progress. I was not happy with number 4, but it will come.

This font has been renamed and thoroughly updated.
The text on the demo picture above is a quote from WIRED magazine UK edition, AUG/2012, p34.

Excellent and (as with all your work) beautifully weighted and balanced. 10/10

@meek: Thank you for the special mention. I really appreciate it.

@p2pnut: Thank you for your kind words and generous rating. As you may have noticed, I have been largely absent on FS in the last few months. This is only my second new work in 2012. With this in mind, every friendly comment, criticism are twice as precious.

Great work. It reminds me of a cooler version of Sintra which I recently used in a logo competition.
Although yours is a lot more useable and modern.
I even started to do my own version of it in Fontstruct, but never fully completed it.

@ChristianD: My work is based on simple geometry. There are a few similar fonts around, most notably: Curb Desire by KalleGraphics (above); Mass by Max Little, MyFonts; Foldron by Ronald Underwood, MyFonts. Curb Desire (published on Behance in 2009) has a close resemblance to Foldron (2005), but the two works differ in many details. My font, Oktogon Stencil, is somewhat closer to Mass, as both share the same geometry. Since Apple Inc. patented the rounded rectangle, I opted for octagons.:))

Fortunately, there are no design patents in typography, and creative people get inspired by other's works. The first popular sans serif, Akzidenz Grotesk (1896) was thought to be derived from Walbaum or Didot (similar metrics, minus serifs). Helvetica, originally named as Neue Haas Grotesk (1957), was developed to compete with AG in the sans serif arena. Arial (1982), widely distributed by Microsoft Windows, shares many features with Helvetica. In fact, the two typefaces are so similar, it takes an expert to tell them apart.

What was your point?

I'm with you. The history of the Typography is a field to teach here, IMHO. Thanks once again.
Comment by elmoyenique 22nd september 2012

I agree with you Frodo.

You make your own fonts with your own expression–> your creative activity –> your idea & you realize it on yout way.

This is how is shut stay.
