Chicago is windy, Pittsburgh is steely, and New York never sleeps. But Vancouver, it turns out, has a great many defining characteristics. By Any Other Name is a poster exhibition (seen here, on display at Waterfront Station, the city’s major public transit terminal) conceived of and curated by the Vancouver graphic design studio Working Format. They tasked 7 local graphic designers with illustrating, in poster form, some of Vancouver’s alternative names: Terminal City, No Fun City, Hollywood North, among them). Working Format’s contribution, Rain City, despite its gloomy implication, gets our stamp of approval, hands down.
