Monotype launched ‘Helvetica Now’ as Variable Font.
In the past few years, we experienced a growing demand for variable fonts. While traditional font formats require multiple files for multiple variations, variable fonts package all the necessary DNA into one tidy, more compact file to save space and time, eliminating a significant constraint on web designers and developers. In other words, they give you all the freedom to focus on your design without worrying about page speed or fixed font widths and weights. So it’s no surprise that Monotype has finally launched Helvetica Now as a variable font.
Helvetica Now is one of today’s most versatile fonts. Every single glyph of the iconic Helvetica typeface has been redrawn and redesigned in order to update it for the demands of contemporary design and branding. Helvetica Now still preserves the typeface’s Swiss mantra of clarity, simplicity, and neutrality, while giving you all the options you need for your typographic work.
The Helvetica Now Variable Font builds on Monotype’s 2019 re-design and release of Helvetica Now to empower designers to blend weights (hairline to extra black), optimal sizes (four-point to infinity), and new compressed and condensed widths for more design freedom and unlimited typographic expressions.
