Friends, colleagues and collaborators,

For eight years, Plural has had the great fortune of collaborating on a variety of amazing projects—from interactive books and experimental identity systems to experiential installations and animated web projects. We thank you and the entire Chicago design community for your support, energy and resources in helping us build our portfolio of work.

We are excited to begin a new chapter. Today we announce the launches of Studio Chew and Normal.

We look forward to new and inspiring collaborations in 2016 and beyond.

July Residency at A&D Gallery – Columbia College


With Exquisite Gallery, the gallery itself provides the canvas for experimentation. Akin to the surrealist parlor game, Exquisite Corpse, there is no telling what will result in the end. It is this trust in the creative process that has guided Plural’s creative studio practice.


Opening Reception: June 26, 5-8 PM
Show runs June 26 – July 27

NewCity Design 50


Plural is part of the 2014 NewCity Design 50: Who Shapes Chicago. Newcity wrote: “After getting to know each other as students at UIC, Jeremiah Chiu and Renata Graw started Plural in 2008, making them the newish kids on this block. WIth a multi-disciplinary focus and a client base including a wide range of cultural institutions, like Lyric Opera and the many manifestations of Theaster Gates, Plural has also garnered attention for its print publication work for various Edmar enterprises (Lumpen, Mash Tun, etc.) and Alarm Press. Closely connected to the art world, they had a show last summer at the Public Works Gallery and this summer will engage in a  residency/exhibition at the A+D Gallery at Columbia College.”

We’re number 23.
