Based in Royal Oak, Michigan,Vectorform invents digital products and experiences with a focus on innovative mobile and emerging technology solutions. Vectorform partners with premier global brands including Microsoft MSFT +0.72%, Disney, Coca Cola, and Volkswagen to create the next iconic experience.

Aside from designing experiences for clients, their elite team of artists, engineers, entrepreneurs and technologists has also developed a number of its own applications that have proven very successful.

 

“Vectorform has evolved from a digital agency to part think tank, part lab, and part studio,” stated Vectorform Director of Product Vision, Kevin Foreman.

One of Vectorform’s most popular applications is the ever-evolving Toolbox for Windows 8.  The free application has recorded over 850,000 downloads and is currently the number 1 productivity app available on the Windows Store.
