Over the past 15 years, the Vectorform team has built and maintained long term relationships with some of the world’s largest brands, working with companies such as Microsoft, Chrysler and 3-Dimensional Services (our very first client, who we still work with today). Building these strong relationship has allowed us the opportunity to create ground breaking digital experiences for some of the world’s largest brands, while continuing to extend our expertise to fortune 500 companies across the globe.
As you might expect, some of our projects stay off the radar of the public due to confidentiality agreements with these companies; however, many other projects (such as Pandemic, Galactic Alliance, Settlers of Catan and Tron) have gained a great deal of attention due to their unique style of gaming and connections to pop culture. While every project we have worked on holds great importance, there are a few that have marked major milestones for Vectorform. Here’s an inside look at some of the projects that stand out in our history… Read moreAimee Dooling – December 3, 2014

What did you want to be when you grew up?
I always wanted to be a teacher growing up. I actually started off majoring in secondary education until I found graphic design.Jennifer Tonio – November 25, 2014
Started in 1999 as a 5 person start-up based in Detroit, MI, Vectorform has transformed over the past 15 years into an award winning company with 120+ employees in 5 offices around the globe. As we’ve grown, our culture has remained strong and each person who has joined the Vectorform team has been a major contributor to our success. As CEO & Co-Founder, Jason Vazzano, puts it,
“The Vectorform office culture is as fun and diverse as the industries it serves. The halls of Vectorform are full of smart, passionate, talented people, joined by the occasional office dog – giving the company a west-coast start-up feel. The flexible schedule and lack of dress code provides an open and respectful environment where individual contributions continue to shape the culture of the company. The open floor plan allows the group to switch between heads down production or tuning into the latest industry announcements at a moment’s notice.” CBS Detroit, October 2012 – Royal Oak’s Vectorform, 12-Year-Old ‘Overnight Success,’ Is Hiring

How we rose from the dust of the dotcom bust…
This month marks 15 years since Vectorform was launched out of a small office in a storage garage facility in Davisburg, MI. Back in 1999, there wasn’t the investment support for tech start-ups like there is today. Our co-founders had to get started the old fashioned way, by using credit cards and loans for funding to get Vectorform off the ground.
Over the course of this 10 part blog series, we’ll take look back on how we got started, how we’ve grown and where our continuing growth will take us. Though many things have changed in the past 15 years, one thing that remains the same is our passion for innovation and inventing cutting edge digital experiences.Aimee Dooling – October 6, 2014

Workplace culture is a topic that has always fascinated me. Every organization’s is different. When I have the opportunity to chat about Vectorform’s culture, which is pretty much any time I can squeeze it into a conversation, I feel there is only one way to describe it. It’s like electricity; every day I walk through the door and while I can’t see it, I can feel it! I know it’s there, and it has an effect on everything! Read moreAimee Dooling – September 2, 2014

We’re lucky here in Detroit Michigan; the only OFFF conference held in the United States is just a 5 hour drive down to Cincinnati Ohio. After attending the “big brother” OFFF conference in Barcelona this year, I was anxious to see how this shorter single-day affair would turn out.
Well, it was fantastic.Aimee Dooling – August 4, 2014
