Nick Shinn

Building on his experience as an art director and graphic designer in the 1980s and 90s—and as a pioneer of digital media—Nick launched the Shinntype foundry in 1998. The foundry now presents a rich and eclectic catalogue of unique fonts, tailored to contemporary taste.

Nick’s typefaces are on view daily in The Globe and Mail, for which he designed all the fonts.
