Octave has been created with the intention of fusing together the graphical elements of written musical composition with the English alphabet. My passion for illustration and typography made me naturally lean towards lettering, while music is a very important element in my creative process.
When reading the newspaper or a book, a designer might unconsciously stop acknowledging the content due to the very natureof the letters. Often in observing the fonts used in books I've read, I've thought that for those of us who work with these fonts, they are analogous to the notes on a score in the eyes of a musician. They represent the graphic structure that builds the music by which emotions, ideas and feelings are communicated. In the same way, letters are the graphic structure with which texts are composed, making them tools to communicate emotions, ideas and feelings in their own right.
