Munich is known for its beers, wursts, superior cars, that one invincible soccer team, and – as some believe – for being the northernmost city of Italy, which says a lot about the Bavarian mentality, but that is a completely different story.

Vectorform New York started in a small office at 425 Keap Street in the up and coming neighborhood of Williamsburg in north Brooklyn. At the time, barriers to entry in the neighborhood were much lower than they were today. It was a very desirable location as it was a growing trend for startups and tech companies to place an office in Williamsburg. There’s something about this location that allows an escape from the fast life of the city, but still maintains the competitive vibe. It’s a haven for creative minds and is now a world famous neighborhood. Most employees would agree the location is an amazing asset to VF. Since then the office has been relocated slightly northwest of the previous location to 190 North 10th St, now a much more convenient location for clients to visit, but still in the same neighborhood.

The Vectorform Seattle office as we know it opened in 2011 with just the voices of Ken Disbennett, Suzy Larson, Woody Floyd, and Zach Norton to echo in its “vault“ – the sweet spot in the office where designers and developers collaborate. Today, a lot more voices – and all their ideas – bounce off its walls.
But there wasn’t always the ping-pong room to refresh our brains, the full kegerator to lubricate the flow of ideas, the homemade lighted sign to warm our walls with its festive glow of colors, or the vistas of Pike Place Market and Elliott Bay to welcome us in the morning and see us off in the evening. There was a job to be done and the determination to make something more of it.Jennifer Tonio – January 29, 2015
