Have you ever wanted one million fonts in a single file (over two-and-a-half million with italics)?
It is now possible with Helvetica Now Variable.
These are great news for all of us, not only the graphic designers, web designers, and developers.
The big news
The famous type foundry Monotype launched a variable version of the most popular font – Helvetica. It now has more than a million fonts in a single file.
Its name is Helvetica Now Variable and it is built on the 2019 release of Helvetica Now.
This is probably the biggest fonts news for 2021, I really don’t think that something better will come to this year.
What is Helvetica Now Variable?
It is the most complete font on the planet, at least on planet Earth.
Helvetica Now Variable has over 1 million styles to play (over two-and-a-half million with italics), putting you in control of everything:
- You can blend weights as you wish.
- Have all the styles in just one file.
- Compressed or condensed widths for huge typographic projects – you decide.
- You can move through the entire styles sequence quickly and with ease.
Equally important is that you have everything included.
Charles Nix, Creative Type Director at Monotype, said:
“This font gives designers the firepower they need – from greater creative freedom to typographic expression – to produce exquisitely fine-tuned typography and expressive, animated headlines. Moreover, it’s just plain fun, with the potential to bring the good news of variable fonts to the masses. Helvetica Now Variable is everything Helvetica should be today.”
Helvetica Now Variable is a powerful extension of the Helvetica Now family that helps you make custom-blends from its weights (Hairline to ExtraBlack), optical sizes (four point to infinity), and new Compressed and Condensed widths.
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.
