“I think this picture of myself pretty much sums me up. I’m a very happy guy who enjoys laughing and having a good time. Another fun fact is that this picture was taken at our own Kevin Foreman’s wedding by a former Vectorformer.”

 What did you want to be when you grew up?

When I was little the first thing I ever wanted to be was a hot dog salesman. One of the guys with a little cart and umbrella that sets up shop in a parking lot! To this day my family likes to remind me of my younger aspirations. Fortunately for me, I discovered programming instead. I will say though, that I can still grill up a pretty good hot dog when needed.

Chris Pullman Lectures at CCS in Detroit

Posted by Lindsay Lamb – September 29, 2009

One of Vectorform’s new designers, Ryan Cady who is Third Thursday Chair of AIGA Detroit, attended Chirs Pullman’s lecture at CCS in Detroit. Mr. Pullman gave his lecture on his vast history as a Designer, his process from being a History major in undergrad at Princeton, and his ultimate admission to getting his MFA from Yale.

After graduating from Yale in 1966, Chris Pullman began teaching at Yale and working in his own practice with his wife before being asked to become the head of design at WGBH in Boston.  The station had just been rebranded, and this was at a time when public television was still in its infancy stages and was not as well known as it is today.  He worked at WGBH for over 30 years helping to mold the station by creating promotions, print, motion graphics for shows such as Nova and Frontline, some of the earliest interactive content for the web (Prodigy!), as well heading up the design group for WGBH’s new HQ in Boston.

He also created the 2mobile to promote the station, which is pretty awesome.

Surface in the Sauna (w/Drinks)

Posted by – August 18, 2008

At Vectorform were all about enhancing user experience, and what better way to enhance the Microsoft Surface experience then by placing it in the Vectorform Corporate Sauna. That’s right– sweltering temperatures, cedar walls and multi-touch goodness. After a series of tests we were all shocked at how well the Microsoft Surface performed at over 120 degrees.

Join us next week as our Surface stress tests continue with Surface Skydiving.
