Moveable Inc. started up in 1983 as a small, quality-driven typesetting studio called Moveable Type. It has grown steadily since then, adding services and establishing a reputation for professionalism, thoughtful attention to detail and a strong commitment to serving its clients. Today the company operates around the clock out of a landmark 24,000-square-foot loft space in Toronto’s downtown west district, and employs 50 people.
Typesetting still has pride of place in today’s Moveable, and the company offers production services for a wide variety of print projects. Its innovative proofreading and typographic fine-tuning service
refines designer-formatted pages to ensure that a document is error-free and meets the
highest typographic standards. This division specializes in corporate communications, and has been responsible for typesetting and proofreading hundreds of annual reports, including those of major corporations like Bank of Montreal, Bell Canada, Thomson Corporation, New York Life, Telus, Barrick, Weston, and Onex. It has also contributed its talents to the production of high-quality catalogues and websites for arts institutions, publishers and other arts organizations, including the Carnegie Museum in Pittsburgh, the Davis Museum at Wellesley College, the Toronto International Film Festival, Firefly Books, The Mercury Press, Cambridge Galleries, and others. Its role as a publisher is still fledgling: to date the company has published just two titles, Erin Mouré’s Pillage Laud and Robert Majzels’s Apikoros Sleuth Limited Edition.
The company’s growing print division today features two Heidelberg offset presses, three Xerox digital presses, three high-speed black-and-white digital printers and an in-house bindery. Its poster division includes two large-format inkjet plotters and offers speedy production of digital colour posters for indoor and outdoor point-of-sale, event marketing, signage, and art projects.
Moveable’s prepress and image divisions offer a full range of services, including high-end
drum scans, colour editing and image retouching, file preparation for computer-to-plate workflow, and a variety of colour-accurate proofing options.
Moveable Online, the company’s Internet division, offers everything from HTML coding to
custom dynamic application development and secure hosting services. It collaborates with its
design studio clients to create websites featuring high production values and intelligent,
user-friendly functionality. It also develops and licenses powerful business applications,
including WebStore, a phenomenally successful e-commerce engine, and WebCell, an online
corporate procurement system for the telecom industry.
Moveable has won more than 75 international awards for excellence in the graphic arts. Its work has been cited by the American Center for Design, the New York Type Directors Club, the Mead Annual Report Show, The Advertising & Design Club of Canada and Applied Arts magazine, among others.
