Poster winner – Vancouver International Auto Show

For the past seven years, the Vancouver International Auto Show has reached out to British Columbian artists to submit designs for the Show’s official poster, in an effort to showcase local talent and pay homage to the province’s many skilled designers. Vancouver’s Trish Jodoin designed the 2014 winning poster, which uses abstract imagery to depict the aesthetic and progression of the automotive industry, and the innovation of the Vancouver International Auto Show.“I wanted to present a poster that would reflect both the Vancouver setting and the excitement of cars themselves,” says Trish.“Rather than choose the usual downtown skyline shot for Vancouver, I think the blurred background evokes a rainy city street at night, which is a wonderfully typical Vancouver sight. The slightly abstract lights in the front suggest two vehicles passing each other. I also think these lines subtly echo the graphic in the Vancouver Auto Show’s logo.”Vancouver International Auto Show Executive Director Paul McGeachie said the judging team was excited by Trish’s design. “We loved the use of colours and blurred lines and felt that the poster was quite different than previous winners. It’s a great reflection of not only the artistic view of the Auto Show, but the excitement of driving in a vibrant city like Vancouver.”

Trish received $1,200 for her winning design.

The Vancouver International Auto Show takes place March 25-30, 2014 at the Vancouver Convention Centre.
