Collection description on product page / Vendor connection

I need to connect vendor to a vendor collection and show that vendor (collection) description on my product page. 
Each product ofc has a vendor. Each vendor has a collection. How do I connect product vendor to collection vendor and extract the description?

I also need a link back to that vendor collection as well as the logo for the vendor. 
Would it be smarter just to save all vendor logos as the same name and connect vendor field to image url? Save some searches (load speed). Alternative solutions are most welcome if it's faster to load. 

Basic need. Vendor descripion, logo and a link to the vendor collection from the Product page

Ehe, no??

I sell design lighting and it's often more about the brand than the product. Need to fetch the collection description (about the brand text) based on the vendor on the product as they are the same. 
Ex. Product has vendor "Fine Vendor"
Collection for that vendor is /collections/fine-vendor

 

Just can't find a good way to make the connection...

This is an accepted solution.

I figured it out, it was super easy /blush

 

{% assign vendorHandle = product.vendor | handle %}
{% if collections[vendorHandle].products.size > 0 %}
{{ collections[vendorHandle].description }}
{% endif %}
