Helvetica Now

Helvetica, one of the most famous and widely used fonts, was recently redesigned in an effort to adapt it to the “digital age”. The new typeface, called Helvetica Now, is available in three formats: Micro, Display, and Text. In the font’s recreation, its designers sought out to correct the major complaint that users had of its mismatched range of sizes across different characters. While to the naked eye, the two fonts look very similar, the designers noted that Helvetica’s smaller details were what they sought to revision for the modern era, and so far, Helvetica now has received lots of positive feedback.
