I dunno honey childs but Center and Geogrotesque are a little too close to me for one not to be a copy of the other... discuss [politely] amongst yourselves.

We should also consider the designers past works. In this case both of them have previously published quite original fonts and it's true, there are similarities, but I have a feeling that each designer had a different philosophy when creating these fonts.

Here is an overlay comparison of Geogrotesque Regular (Eduardo Manso, 2008; in green ) and Center Regular (Max Phillips, 2013; in black). Both samples are screenshots from MyFonts. I have adjusted the spacing of Center to match Geogrotesque. The image is wider than the column, but I leave it the way it is, so that you can judge for yourself at the full resolution:
