Vital Imagery Ltd. Celebrating 10 Years

"The starting point of all achievement is desire." — Napoleon Hill.

It's time to sing Happy Birthday to Vital Imagery Ltd. (VI) and celebrate its achievements.

Ten years ago, this online subscription graphics service began offering customers quality photos, illustrations and more for use in business and personal projects.

The company was the vision of a young, energetic team comprised of people with extensive knowledge of, and experience  in,  the industry.  Their desire to provide clients with a new exciting option for images inspired the dream. The dream drove the inspiration. And the inspiration achieved the goal.

I had the pleasure of coming on board several years ago. It was a heady time for the still-relatively youthful company as new initiatives and partnerships were helping forge what would soon be its future as a global leader in the industry. My desire to be part of this was certainly inspired by that potential. However, it was the personality of the business that really appealed.

Having come from a work environment where the employees came last, what a delight it was to find a workplace where the health and happiness of the staff were always the priorities. That this could be done while continuing to expand and grow proves it's the best way to get the job done.

And as VI celebrates 10 years of success,  there's plenty about the job that's been done to be proud of. With a dedication to keeping their websites fresh,  content managers are busy adding thousands of new images each month. There is now an incredible inventory of 13 million images on Clipart.com , while iCLIPART.com has an impressive collection of 8 million and iPHOTOS.com has 5 million.

The number one 3D animation subscription site, AnimationFactory.com with over 600,000 images is also part of the VI family of websites.  As well, educators from around the world use content in resources and the classroom from two school sites —  iCLIPART For Schools and Clipart.com School Edition .

As the stock imagery price leader, there is pride in the history behind the company, the philosophy that drove it and the contributors and customers who have helped to build it.

From my perspective I feel pretty darn lucky to work for a company that cares about people. Customer service is a priority. And by donating a portion of every purchase made to  Kiva.org VI supports small business worldwide.

So Happy Birthday,  Vital Imagery Ltd. Here's to a job well done and much continued success in the future.

And thank you for bringing me along for the ride.
