Co-founders Charlie and Alison Hoy have always shared a passion for digital images and community development. Both software engineers, they first met in The Graphics Ring - a Webring that was Charlie's brainchild and grew to be the largest Webring on the Internet. They married and each enjoyed very successful careers in the image content industry with pioneering leaders ArtToday, Hemera, Animation Factory and Jupitermedia.

In 2006, with experience and commitment, their entrepreneurial DNA kicked in and Vital Imagery was born. Their vision and mission to acquire and deliver the highest-quality image content to thousands of customers is stronger than ever, and new content is continuously being added to meet the needs of today’s fast-paced digital market.
Charlie Hoy

He redeveloped online properties for high performance including Barry’s Clipart and Clipart Connection significantly increasing traffic and recurring revenue. He continued his career delivering growth and results for Hemera and Jupitermedia. Charlie now leads all aspects of Vital Imagery’s business with diligence, delivering quality product and a solid technology platform ensuring customer experience is safe, secure and efficient.
