We are proud to announce that Vectorfom was honored in the Digital Technology category,at the fourth annual DiSciTech awards, April 18, 2013, at Oakland Community College in Auburn Hills. Patrick Samona, Director of Engagement and Amy Stoddard, Senior Interactive Designer, were there to represent Vectorform and accept the award.
Neowin’s John Callaham spoke with Kevin Foreman, Director of Product Vision, at Vectorform about Toolbox for Windows 8.
Here’s a sneak peek of the interview…
How did the idea come about to develop Toolbox for Windows 8?
We’ve noticed a trend with recent mobile operating systems in that they trade productivity and control for simplicity. For smaller devices, such as phones, this makes sense. However, for tablets and other larger-screen devices, we felt that there is an opportunity to take advantage of this under-utilized screen real estate. Our mission was to prove that simplicity and productivity are not mutually exclusive, and to provide a true multitasking environment for the touch computing era.

Vectorform created The AP Timeline Reader in collaboration with The Associated Press and Microsoft. Now the HTML5 site is up for a Technical Achievement Award at South by Southwest, which means our project is one of five recognized as “…re-inventing and re-defining the technical parameters of our online experience.”
How do we go about re-inventing and redefining the technical parameters of online experience? HTML5, CSS3, and pure UX magic. Hear master magician Dominic Espinosa talking about the AP Timeline Reader below, or wander over to Renee DeCoskey’s detailed overview at Business 2 Community. News reading reinvented, and it’s got pictures!

News from Vectorform Germany. “Neue Arbeiten” (“new kinds of work”) was the event theme of the IHK and Microsoft Event in Bochum. At this event there was a presentation of the MS Surface and the 24’’ and a 46’’ Multi-touch Citron Displays. The special focus of this event was how modern ways of cooperation and communication can sustainably change companies. Vectorform provided various solutions out of different market segments on MS Surface and the Multi-touch displays and revealed the future potentials that lie within the use of Windows 7 and Multi-touch applications.
Today marks the first day of our brand new microsite portal Apps.Vectorform. This site will see many new additions and products in the next coming months so bookmark it now and come back soon.
We kicked off 2009 with SurfaceDJ Lite (free), our first consumer iPhone app in the iTunes App Store, and have since followed it with a much more featured-packed paid ($1.99) version of SurfaceDJ. We put hundreds of hours of design and development work into both versions to deliver fans with the choices and features they most requested. It was all worth it as SurfaceDJ is currently featured in the iTunes New & Featured section of the App Store and we couldn’t be happier. We are continuing to design and develop many more consumer apps and have a couple more almost ready to be released (more teasers and screenshots coming soon!)
Apps.Vectorform will be seeing some more enhancements and additions very soon (working on the iPhone optimized version now, and a better support forum). This is just the beginning, but we are excited to finally have a dedicated portal for all of these goodies just waiting to be gobbled up.
Thanks again to everyone who has downloaded SurfaceDJ and given us great valuable feedback. Keep it coming!
