Vectr, Meet Sarah.
2 years ago
This week we got the opportunity to meet Sarah Vonderberg, one of Vectr’s users. Over dinner she told us her story and it was, in a word, awesome. Sarah is the living incarnation of what first inspired us to build Vectr. Seeing the results of years of hard work start to make a real impact on the lives of real people like Sarah is a pretty awesome feeling, to say the least.
Sarah works in a small marketing team in Korea, and she’s always had to throw design over the fence to a seperate team, and wait for the results to come back. This has always been a bit frustrating for her because she knew exactly what she wanted to design, but she just couldn’t use the complicated software that would do it. We’ve always believed that there are millions of would-be designers out there just like Sarah, in this exact same situation.
But then, Sarah found Vectr.
After kicking the tires on Vectr, Sarah found she’d finally unlocked the key to a long-held passion for design. Finally she could translate the creativity in her head onto the computer screen in front of her, without frustration and headaches. She immediately wanted to dive deeper into design, so she got started working on her first iconset, a set of cake icons which she published on Iconfinder.
You can buy/download Sarah’s beautiful iconset here. Just a few weeks after getting started, Sarah’s sold her iconset about 15 times and pocketed over $100. Not bad for her very first design project.
Like we said, we’ve always believed that there are millions of would-be designers out there. They’re full of creativity, but they’re held back by bad software: Sarah’s a perfect example. We’ll keep building Vectr for people like Sarah.
