The type foundry Monotype has just released a variable version of the world's most popular font, and it has more than a million styles in a single file. Helvetica Now Variable font builds on the 2019 release of the re-designed Helvetica Now to give designers the extra freedom of a variable font. 

With more than a million styles to play with, designers can blend weights (from hairline to extra black) and optimal sizes (four point to infinity) and use new compressed and condensed widths for huge flexible typographic expression. If you're looking for more fonts for your work, see our pick of the best free fonts for designers.
