When I want to just set some type without any fuss, I start with Output. With a voice that is fresh and a little techy, it is designed to excel in situations where information comes before style, when type must be understated without becoming generic.
Rooted in code
Output is a companion to my typeface Input, a type family designed for computer programming. While Input is tuned to the specific demands of code, Output’s softer curves and moderate proportions confront the demands of readability in text and user interfaces.
Make it your own
Output offers a wide-ranging set of alternate versions that allow you to open and close terminals at will to make Output match the tone of your layout, or adjust its spacing and shapes to stay readable in more rugged environments.
Output Sans is the technical one. Closest in design to Input, its apertures are neither fully closed nor fully open.
Output Sans Open is open and friendly, the most lyrical and humanist of the bunch. It works especially well at the smallest sizes, where those open apertures keep counters from filling in.
Output Sans Closed is a bit more buttoned up. Things tend to end on the vertical or the horizontal, and its round intersections are reminiscent of neo-grotesques.
