Gilbert Baker is the creator of the iconic Rainbow Flag and he sadly passed away the end of March 2017. He was both an LGBTQ activist and artist, and to honor his memory, NewFest and NYC Pride partnered with Ogilvy & Mather and the font creation toolmaker Fontself to create a free font inspired by the design language of the iconic Rainbow Flag. The typeface name is “Gilbert”.

The font was created in Illustrator CC and then converted into font files with a custom build of the font creation add-on Fontself for Illustrator, specifically adapted to generate color vector fonts. Visit Type with Pride to know more about the font and download it!
