“Octobre”, named for the Octobre en Normandie Festival, is based on an agglomeration of pixel-like squares and a low-resolution bitmap aesthetic suggesting the early days of computers. The letters are designed as solid bricks, but with a pattern of missing parts that suggests stencil letters.
Apeloig created the font during a 1993/94 residency at the Villa Medici at the French Academy of Art in Rome. The experimental typeface evokes the festival’s program of dance and music (both classical and contemporary), performed by world renowned conductors and musicians. The letters are mechanical, massive, and designed as if sculpture with each part emerging slowly from a solid form. The edges seem to be generated from a bitmap image, with softly defined, overlapping shapes that suggest enlarged pixels spread out on a grid.
