The first architecture and design newswire. The industry’s biggest media network. 25 years of international media relations experience.

It is an intermediary between design professionals and the media. v2com is a tool for professionals that delivers increased media impact for their projects, while providing journalists a reliable source of information for their articles.

v2com boasts the world’s largest network of specialized media, with more than 6,150 publications. The network is updated continuously, with new journalists and editors added every day.

The v2com team has more than 25 years of experience in architecture, design and lifestyle, as well as in communications and public relations.

The origins of v2com

The v2com newswire was founded in 2008 by Pierre Bélanger, an art director and architectural technologist, and Julie Payette, a specialist in international media relations for the architecture and design industry.

Their goal was to facilitate the discovery of design news and create a fast, efficient tool for the media, at an affordable cost for clients. The transition from paper to digital press kits was inevitable, but at the time there was no tool to meet the unique requirements of architects and designers. v2com filled that niche, becoming the industry’s first specialized newswire. It has since become the international standard.
