HEARSAY No7 - The 'Gilbert' FONT

This month we have used the ‘Gilbert’ font to create our visual language. 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, newfest and NYCPride partnered with fontself to create a free font inspired by the design language of the iconic Rainbow Flag, the font was named ‘Gilbert’ after Mr. Baker.
