Knockout is a sans-serif typeface designed by Jonathan Hoefler and Tobias Frere-Jones. It was originally released through H&FJ in 1994. Knockout is unique in that it contains nine different widths and each width is individually designed to include subtle variations, harkening back to nineteenth century typefaces that predated the idea of uniform type families.
