Gilbert Baker, LGBTQ activist and the creator of the iconic Rainbow Flag sadly passed away on March 31, 2017. and artist. To honor his legacy, NewFest and NYC Pride partnered with Fontself to create 'Gilbert,' a free font inspired by the design language of the iconic Rainbow Flag.

 

ABOUT THE FONT

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. For updates on about new font weights, styles and creative contests, follow us on our websiteInstagram, Twitter, and on our development blog.
