The Creative Economy in Huron County…..

It’s all about making the right connections!

…and Charlie & Alison Hoy of Brussels, Ontario have done exactly that!

Although it was the exquisite Victorian 19th century architecture and stately homes that first attracted the Hoys to the area, it was the capacity to connect to the rest of the world through advanced technology that made it possible to establish their business in this quaint rural Ontario community.


…..and the rest is history.

Their company, known as Vital Imagery Ltd., was founded by an experienced management team with a desire to develop and market electronic clipart, photos, fonts, sounds and animations to professionals in graphic design, publishing and education, as well as to the home user. The original team included company owners Charlie and Alison Hoy as well as two other individuals with significant experience and contacts in the various relevant industries.

business growth

From the launch of its subsidiary,, the company has grown into one of the industry leaders, proudly boasting a collection of close to 8 million high quality electronic images including clipart, animations, fonts, sounds, HD video and photos, licensed from some of the world’s leading micro-stockers.

Of recent, and this is the really exciting news, their company has acquired the largest supplier of clipart and 3D animations world-wide, increasing its inventory from its current 8 million to over 21 million. This is quite a coup! 


Company Co-founder and CEO Charlie Hoy says, “These acquisitions enhance the diversity of Vital Imagery’s image components and affirms its leadership position in the world of royalty-free online image subscriptions.”  Associated with well recognized companies, such as, MicroSoft, Warner Bros., Nintendo, GM OnStar, ABC and CBS the Hoys have escalated their company to the top of the pyramid.

The Municipality of Huron East would like to take this opportunity to congratulate the Hoys and their staff for the contribution they’ve made in strengthening the economic position, not only of Huron East, but its entire region. Well done! We look forward to seeing you soar!
