Jim Shinnick


Having overseen design for some of the biggest trade publications in the U.S. during the past two decades, Mr. Shinnick turned his skills to all areas of design and production with the founding of his New Moon Design studio. From book and web design to custom illustration and layout, Mr. Shinnick’s studio turns out eye-catching visuals. The “guitar word cloud” design used for NGM’s Traveling Exhibition was created by Mr. Shinnick, with New Moon putting every element of our tour into that one striking image (so much so that it is referred to as the “Shinnick Strat”. When not designing, Mr. Shinnick is often found performing with a guitar in hand.
