Gil Modern is a distinctive low-contrast display typeface featuring Lombardic capitals and rounded lowercase letters also suitable for small-size typesetting. Inspiration came from a medieval parody developed within the context of the Catalan Art Nouveau movement. Gil Modern is named after Pau Gil i Serra, the patron of the Hospital de la Santa Creu i de Sant Pau in Barcelona, a masterpiece of ‘Modernisme català’, the Catalan Art Nouveau movement. A Catalan banker living in Paris, Pau Gil died in 1896. In his will he ordered the construction of a hospital to assist the poor. Thanks to his donation the complex of buildings was designed by the renowned Catalan architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner (1850-1923) and built from 1902–1930 in the El Guinardò neighbourhood of Barcelona.
