Gibson: New Website and Extended Family

Gibson family has been extended by the addition of 8 more fonts, an all new website, and more.

Rod McDonald FGDC announced last week the launch of the newly extened Gibson font family, along with a new type specimin website where you can explore and experince this wonderful typeface.

The Gibson font family is a humanist sans serif typeface designed by Mr. McDonald, and produced by Patrick Griffin, Kevin King and Jamie Chang of Canada Type, to honour the late John Gibson FGDC (1928–2011), Rod’s long-time friend and one of the original founders of the Society of Graphic Designers of Canada (GDC).

The 16-font family is available at token pricing to make it especially affordable for design students. For less than the price of a design textbook, a student can now have a sturdy and contemporary humanist sans serif family that fits pretty much any design application, and will remain useful long after academic studies and well into a professional career in design.

In addition to being a modern and versatile typeface, it's also socially responsible in that all revenues from its sale through Canada Type will be donated to a variety of causes aiming to improve the typographic arts and elevate design education in Canada.
