The Gibson font family hits the right spot for many people and on many levels. It is a humanist sans serif typeface designed by Canadian type designer Rod McDonald (FGDC), and produced by Patrick Griffin of Canada Type, to honour 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).

All funds from the sales of the fonts go to support type education in Canada.

 
The Gibson typeface has become my go-to workhorse when I need a dependable sans serif in printed magazines, on signage and for online projects. Nice tight letter spacing and the legibility are two of the selling points. I love the contrast I can achieve by using the light and semi-bold weights, plus the fact that I feel the typography has a Canadian flavour when I use Gibson.
— John Lyttle, GDC
