Vancouver, BC (September 21, 2004) – Subplot Design Inc. joins some of the most influential designers in Vancouver literally at centre stage at the Vancouver Home and Interior Design Show from October 14th to 17th at BC Place Stadium. Subplot Design was selected as one of the ten design firms for “Movers and Shapers”, an exhibition showcasing the city’s most inspiring and ground-breaking contemporary design.


“Movers and Shapers” celebrates the designers behind a majority of Vancouver’s award- winning and internationally-acclaimed graphics and brand identities, interiors, products, fashion, and architecture. Subplot Design, a brand identity and graphic design studio in Gastown, is part of this emerging talent that represents Vancouver’s new “who’s who” list.


“This exhibit demonstrates to the city that Vancouver’s design talent rates up there with some of the top international design firms”, says Matthew Clark, partner and designer at Subplot. “We are proud to be included in this select list and to show off our unique type of design to the city”.


Subplot’s graphic and brand design is distinguished by its unique combination of analytical and strategic thinking with truly breakthrough design creative. Partners Matthew Clark and Roy White’s solutions have been celebrated for their powerful impact on business ROI, as well as for their design excellence. Clark and White’s past work has been fortunate to win over 200 local, national and international awards for both their design excellence and marketing effectiveness.


“Our place in this exhibit is to showcase how Subplot’s approach to graphic design helps businesses take their companies, products, services – not to mention their dreams and ambitions – and build intelligent, relevant, stand-out brands in the marketplace”, says Clark.


Subplot Design would like to invite you to join us for an evening of design on Friday October 15th when a series of key events take place. Karim Rashid, Canadian-born celebrity product designer, will start the night with a talk at 7pm, followed by a design auction for the Krall Foundation at 8:30pm, and a Mix & Mingle reception with drinks and DJ’ed music at 9:00pm in the “Movers and Shapers” exhibit area.
