It’s a fair question. After all, technology is moving like a cheetah. What seems to be “industry standard” one day is “yesterday’s news” the next. Things go from “Beta to VHS to Laserdisc to DVD to BluRay to goodness knows what’s next” in the blink of an eye. It’s almost pointless to commit to a file format. Isn’t it?
Not so fast little mouse. Vector art is here to stay. Here’s why:
I’m sure that we all remember lining up at Chuck E. Cheese to dump quarters into retro video games like Star Wars, Battle Zone and Asteroids (play it online for free). Little did you know, that each quarter was already going to support vector based technology? You were paving the way for other designers to keep the format alive. You are already involved, whether you know it or not.
The one thing that you probably noticed from that type of game play was how smooth it was. How precise the aim and touch. Over time, colourful games like Pac Man came along and gobbled up much of the attention. Pixel-based design was about to take off like a rocket. Vector art took the low road. Finding it’s way to graphic designers who admire qualities like precision and measurement.
Today there are thousands of vector based micro stock collections on the market today. The best are captured here.
Because of it’s mathematical characteristics, vectors will never go away. That’s like geometry going out of style. Not gonna happen. Here’s why…

The artist Adam Jarvis has this to say about this particular print and what it means to him:
“I grew up marinated in comic books, and anime. Most of my classic art training at OCAD in Toronto played second fiddle to my unquenchable appetite for fantasy art and superheroes of the 80’s. Even as a painter and commercial illustrator, I drew from an imaginative place where primary colours jumped from the page. My art has finally come full circle for me with the discovery of vector art. It has allowed me to blend elements of graphic design, typography, and illustration into a truly enjoyable process. I hope that you like the end results, and I hope that you find JADE appealing as well. Please do what you can to share it with others so that my art can end up where it belongs. Thanks. – Adam“
Vectorvault has officially launched a premium line of custom vector art prints. It’s premier release is a piece of vector art entitled simply: “Illusive Wisdom” by Adam Jarvis.
For over 16 years, Adam has struggled with a love affair between advertising, design, typography, vector illustration and art. And as each medium has blossomed over time, so too has his own style of expression. This new blend of vector illustration art is a perfect marriage of style, precision and emotion.
But unlike any of Adam’s previous collections, this design has the flexibility to adapt to your tastes. Take a moment to click on any of the images in this post to visit the unique product page that has been set up on the Vectorvault Store. You’ll not only be able to zoom in on some of the finer details of the art, but also change colors and sizes to suit your purpose. This adds a new dimension to shopping for art. One that we hope to pioneer in exciting new directions.
