1. Helvetica Now Variable Font
During the past 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. In other words, variable fonts give you all the freedom to focus on your design without worrying about fixed font widths and weights. So it’s no surprise that Monotype has finally launched Helvetica Now as a variable font.
