Helvetica Now

Helvetica Now is Monotype’s expansive 2019 update of the iconic Helvetica family. The most notable update is the addition of three optical sizes—Helvetica Now Display, Helvetica Now Text and Helvetica Now Micro. Each optical size is available in eight weights with matching italics, for a total of 48 styles. Other updates include alternate characters such as a lowercase l with a tail, a rounded uppercase G, an uppercase R with a straight rather than curved leg and a single-story lowercase a. Unfortunately, Helvetica Now isn’t available in additional widths like the previous “new” Helvetica from 1983, Helvetica Neue, so it can’t be a comprehensive replacement for all your Helvetica needs.
