We recently announced an expanded set of licensing rights which allows all employees within an organization to access Commercial Production Fonts in their desktop environments.
We recently partnered with KnownUnknown to create an NFT project featuring more than two dozen artists from around the world, working in mediums such as graphic design, branding, footwear design, and photography, all of whom are using Helvetica Now Variable to create unique, original art.
