    The Outline is the latest online venture from now seasoned publisher, Josh Topolsky following his founding of The Verge and run with the web edition of Bloomberg Businessweek. The website foregoes a more traditional web format in favor of “the stack”, a non-linear feed of articles, notices and advertorials.

    The experience provides a wide typographic palette, centered around Göran Söderström’s Eksell Display and Phil Baber’s lively Maria for rich headlines and supporting elements. The body text is set in Fakt by Thomas Thiemich, with Portrait by Berton Hasebe rounding out the mix, appearing in a bunch of unexpected places.

    Seasoned type designer Stéphane Elbaz is credited as design director, with technicalites handled by Code and Theory.

      Love this so much. Fakt and Portrait work really well as size-adjusted companions to the two quirkier designs, Eksell and Maria. Seeing a lot of Maria use recently!
