Helvetica Now typeface

April 9, 2019 · typography

Helvetica® Now is a new chapter in the story of perhaps the best-known typeface of all time. Available in three optical sizes—Micro, Text, and Display—every character in Helvetica Now has been redrawn and refit; with a variety of useful alternates added. It has everything we love about Helvetica and everything we need for typography today.

The planning and design for Helvetica® Now began in December 2014, with the goal of creating a Helvetica that addresses the needs of today’s designers and creatives. Helvetica Now was a collaborative effort involving dozens of designers and engineers in the Monotype Studio.
