Direct from the Studio: More. Helvetica. Now.

Charles Nix, Creative Type Director at the Monotype Studio, takes us on a journey through the evolution of Helvetica®, from its earliest beginnings through to where we are today—the powerful and functional Helvetica Now Variable.

So where are we today? We recently launched Helvetica® Now Variable, which builds on the groundbreaking work of 2019’s Helvetica Now release—all of the clarity, simplicity and neutrality of classic Helvetica with everything 21st-century designers need (optical sizing, stylistic alternates, and extended character set).

Create infinite shades of expression, incredible typographic animations, and ultra-refined typography. Its single font file makes it easier to use and wickedly fast. Load one file and access a million fonts—in a fraction of the size of a traditional font family.

More freedom. More expression. More power. More. Helvetica. Now.
