Meet Gilbert, a new free font celebrating rainbow flag creator Gilbert Baker: VIDEO
NewFest and NYC Pride have partnered with Fontself to create a free font inspired by the design language of Gilbert Baker iconic Rainbow Flag.
Baker, an LGBT activist and artist, passed away on March 31st.
The font was named ‘Gilbert’ after Mr. Baker.
Via Type With Pride:
The Gilbert font was originally designed for striking headlines and statements that could live on banners for rallies and protests and it is now currently being built out into a whole family of weights and styles. The font is available in two versions, a standard vector font and a color font (in OpenType-SVG format) currently usable in Photoshop CC 2017 only. Both are early beta previews that you can download below for free, and you can follow @TypeWithPride on Instagram and on our development blog for news about new font weights, styles and creative contests.
