Gibson was developed by Patrick Griffin, Rod McDonald, Kevin King and released by Canada Type. Gibson contains 8 designs and family bundle choices. p > The Gibson font family hits the right spot for numerous individuals and on many levels. It is a humanist sans serif typeface designed by eminent Canadian type designer Rod McDonald FGDC, and produced by Patrick Griffin and Kevin King of Canada Type, to honour John Gibson FGDC (1928-2011), Rod's long-time buddy and one of the initial founders of the Society of Graphic Designers of Canada (GDC).

As well as paying tribute to John Gibson's productive life and love of the typographic arts, the Gibson family is intended to be a pillar of the future of Canadian design education. Lots of Canadian design schools and institutions will be making it part of their bigger type piracy education programs. The 8-font household is readily available at token rates to make it especially economical for design students. For less than the rate of a style textbook, a student can now have a durable and contemporary humanist sans serif household that fits basically any style application, and will remain useful long after scholastic research studies and well into a professional profession in design.

The Gibson household is available through Canada Type and its popular suppliers. All the profits from its sale will be donated by Canada Type to a range of causes intending to enhance the typographic arts and raise style education in Canada.
