2.23. Richler Font Family, Nick Shinn, Toronto, Ontario, 2001

Typeface In Memory of Canadian Writer Mordecai Richler

"Nick Shinn has lived and worked in Toronto for 25 years. He is a design consultant, publishes his type designs, writes for Graphic Exchange magazine, and teaches at York University. He has designed 17 typeface families, the most popular of which is Fontesque. His Walburn and Brown typefaces appear daily in The Globe and Mail.

The Richler typeface was commissioned in memory of Mordecai Richler and created by Canadian type designer Nick Shinn. It is an original face, full of personality in the details, yet smooth in the composite effect. Up close, each letter is a study in thematic style, with a subtle, firmly crafted, slightly offbeat quality that mocks both artful pretension and mindless conformity."
