Type with Pride: the Gilbert font project

On 31 March 2017, Gilbert Baker the creator of the iconic Rainbow Flag sadly passed away. Mr Baker was both an LGBTQ activist and artist and was known for helping friends create banners for protests and marches. To honour the memory of Gilbert Baker, NewFestand NYC Pride partnered with Ogilvy & Mather and font creation toolmaker Fontself to craft free fonts inspired by the design language of the iconic Rainbow Flag, the typeface was named ‘Gilbert’ after Mr Baker.
A preview version of Gilbert is available on typewithpride.com with two fonts, a standard vector OpenType font that can be used anywhere and a colour vector OpenType-SVG font, usable in Photoshop CC 2017, Illustrator CC 2018 or InDesign CC 2019 and upwards.
