Type With Pride - Gilbert

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 honor the memory of Gilbert Baker, NewFest and NYC Pride partnered with Fontself to create a free typeface inspired by the design language of the iconic Rainbow Flag, the typeface was named 'Gilbert' after Mr. Baker.

Animography was added to the mix to create an animated version of Gilbert. The Gilbert font was originally designed for striking headlines and statements that could live on banners for rallies and protests. The animated version is available for free in our typeface section and is intended for animation, film, social posts and GIFs in the LGBTQ community.
