Despite our name, we don't have anything against monkeys. We've often dreamed of having one as a pet (c'mon, you know you have too). Our name comes from our number one rule: no producing projects on autopilot. Our goal is to create successful projects with a creative process that is decidedly not for monkeys. This mission became clear after a few years of spending too much time as production monkeys and not enough time as fresh, thinking, creative professionals.

We're a creative duo that loves bringing fresh ideas and new solutions to any stage of a project. Whether it's coming up with an original concept or using existing creative assets in new ways, our
team is up to the challenge. We
thrive on collaborating with clients
to achieve thoughtful and effective communications—while always
trying to have some fun along
the way!
