ShinnType was founded in 1999 by Toronto-based, London-born art director and type designer Nick Shinn. Prior to this, his type designs had been published by a number of companies, most notably in the FontFont library. Nick has designed over 20 typefaces, including FF Fontesque. His Walburn and Brown are on view in Canada’s daily newspaper The Globe and Mail, for which they were commissioned, and his 2001 design of the Richler typeface made the front page of the National Post and the Montreal Gazette — as a news item.

He also speaks and writes frequently on type and design, has taught at York University in Toronto, and is a board member of the Society of Typographic Aficionados, in which capacity he was one of the organizers of TypeCon2002, in Toronto.
