EL SEGUNDO, Calif.-- Hot Wheels® announced the induction of lead designer, Steve Vandervate into the Diecast Hall of Fame at the ninth annual Diecast Hall of Fame ceremony in Las Vegas, NV. Vandervate is recognized as one of the "Diecast Designers" for his work in graphic design on Hot Wheels premium and Red Line Club®.

Vandervate joined the Hot Wheels design team in 2003 where he worked as a graphic project designer. In his tenure on the Hot Wheels team Vandevate has worked across the entire portfolio of diecast from Red Line Club to basic and themed assortments, and now is the lead graphic designer for premium and collector segments, while still handling several basic and themed segments.
