3D Tombstones for Vector – the micro satellite launch company.

New funding

Our team had yet another great tombstones or deal gift project. Vector, the micro satellite launch company that’s decreasing barriers to entry and increasing speed to orbit, received $21M funding led by Sequoia Capital, with participation from Shasta Ventures and Lightspeed. This round brings Vector’s total funding to $31M and follows a landmark first half of 2017 for the company.

Successful test flight

This investment comes right after Vector’s successful flight test of the full-scale prototype Vector-R launch vehicle in May, making Vector one of the first to accomplish a successful launch in the new commercial space launch industry.

One of a kind tombstones

To celebrate the funding of this innovative company, these 3D printed tombstones were made. A combination of plexi and 3D print ensures a special result. Hopefully the company can skyrocket to even greater results in the future! Good luck!

The award itself is inspired by a classic sea-side and beach theme, in true style of our Belgian Coast. The 2 main colors blue and white are in line with the event’s house style, resulting in a simple yet elegant design.

Also this year, we’ve created multiple designs for the entire course of the event. For the Knokke Hippique Jumping previous weekend, we’ve made the awards with a 3D printed lighthouse on top. The foot is oak and hand finished with white paint in our design studio.
