Vexcom Web Development Has Closed
Unfortunately due to the poor state of the economy Vexcom was forced to close it's office as of January 1st, 2010. We would like to thank all of the clients, employees and partners that have worked with us over the past 15 years. While we can no longer provide development service, we will do what we can in order to assist any clients that have projects which were developed by us in the past. If you need a recommendation, you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will see if I can point you in the right direction. If you are just looking for some simple web design then go here.
So what happened to everyone?
During 2009 most of the staff either chose to move on or had to be let go as the amount of development work dried up. By December we were down to a skeleton staff of only five people, myself included. We had expanded rapidly over the past five years and had a huge amount of office space. By December we were not even using 25% of the space, the rest remained empty and unused (and costing us a fortune). The economic climate had forced many companies to underbid and take work at a loss just to keep money flowing. We could not compete so our development business, which was the core of Vexcom, dwindled away to nothing. Some of our developers went freelance or started their own companies. Most found new jobs in other industries. I am currently working on some new startups and taking occasional consulting contracts.
I really need to thank all the people that worked at Vexcom over the years. We had the best team on the planet. The people who worked at Vexcom are what made it great and I am grateful to have worked with so many talented, positive and just plain awesome people. I consider myself very lucky to have been a part of it. Vexcom was a small company, perhaps 15 people at our peak, and many more that have come through over the years. We were all very close and it really was like a family and I will miss that the most.
Will you start another development company?
So what are you going to do?
I am working on some start up ideas and taking the occasional consulting contract. As I have over 15 years experience and considerable expertise in many areas of web development and marketing, I am able to provide very valuable insight and direction to companies that are developing or growing an online strategy. If you are such a person, feel free to contact me to see if I can help you out.
Jessica, the co-founder and Creative Director of Vexcom is also working on some new projects further pursuing her creative talents in the fields of photography and visual arts, as well as helping out charitable organizations. You can see what she is up to here.
The development market has been decimated by the economy and by a flood of cheap overseas IT labor. First the design industry got hit, the development industry was next. So once again, thanks for all of the support over the years and best of luck in all your ventures.
