Ethos graphic


At Gilead, we stand for life-changing innovation. We’re here to fundamentally change the course of disease to dramatically improve lives—and are not satisfied until we do. We believe that together, we can defy the impossible with breakthrough science and innovation. We are tenacious in our aim, and ready to partner with anyone who shares our mission. Together, we are creating possible.

Fonts graphic


The Gilead brand utilizes the Proxima Nova typeface family. We use a range of weights, from thin to black, in order to emphasize and deliver a variety of messages across all our platforms.

The Proxima Nova family is the primary font for all print and digital executions. Trebuchet MS is the designated font for all Microsoft Office tasks.

Essonnes is our secondary font and should be used when writing a quote, overview statement or to define a subcategory.

If you are a Gilead employee, Proxima Nova and Essonnes may already be installed on your computer. If it’s not, please click here to download on GNet.
