One afternoon while working through some interface designs for some new features in the
PhotoUp application, I became frustrated by not having all the icons I wanted.Surely, I
had no lack in quantity of icons, between IcoMoon, Icons8, Glphy and others, I had tens
of thousands of icons, however, they all lacked one core offering.
Not a single one of the major icon companies offered custom icon designs. Sure, you
could make a suggestion for and icon and then all users could vote on which ones to be
designed next, but if I needed something obscure and needed it relatively fast, the
chance of getting it designed was slim to none.
vectto is born
Then, in a rather spontaneous moment of frustration the opportunity to start Vectto was
clear. I could create a new product based, socially conscious business offering
employees wholistic employment with the opportunity to creatively express themselves and
earn a respectable wage.
Within a few months I had recruited a few local illustrators and pulled on my existing
network of developers to work with me in the evenings and weekend to launch a new and
improved experience for graphic designers.
At Vectto, our goal is to provide a vast library of modern, sophisticated royalty free
vector icons that can be used in anything from web design, application and software
designs, mobile apps, print design or just about any type of digital medium.
the vectto difference
The Vectto difference? Every Vectto member can have custom icons designed for them for
when our library falls short of the exact icon you may need for that off the wall client
that has some hair-brain request (trust me, I’ve been there).
While offering custom icon design in addition to an icon library is a simple change, we
think it is an important one and hope it brings huge value to your team. Our goal is
that you view team Vectto as an extension of your own team.
With Vectto you can push your designs further with confidence knowing when you need
something different, new, complex or flat our weird, you have a top-notch custom
illustration team at your beckon. With Vectto you can have custom icons delivered in as
