I'm Steve Chow, a Graphic Designer based in Vancouver, Canada.
For someone who pretty much fell into design, I’ve been fortunate to work with some awesome organizations and people, including the Vancouver International Film Festival, the PuSh International Performing Arts Festival, DOXA Documentary Film Festival, the Criterion Collection and Janus Films, the National Film Board of Canada, Vancouver New Music, and the University of British Columbia. Collaborating with inspired art directors, talented film programmers and whip-smart marketing specialists — along with independent filmmakers like Marv Newland, Charles Wilkinson, Chris Chong Chan Fui, Joon Han Yeo, and Ileana Pietrobruno — has been exceptionally rewarding.
For ten years, as the Communications Manager of The Cinematheque, I produced 60 issues of the program guide magazine, 100s of advertising and promotional pieces, and dozens of posters. I was also lead publicist for live events with Crispin Glover and Peter Greenaway; popular series like Studio Ghibli, Film Noir, the European Union Film Festival, Samurai, and The Cremaster Cycle; and many director retrospectives, including Godard, Kurosawa, Ozu, Antonioni, and Fellini.
