  • more than 100,000 hours working with Drupal

  • more than 8,000 hours working with Wordpress

  • more than 25,000 hours designing fun and informative graphics and layouts

  • more than 4,000 hours creating and executing innovating and engaging marketing strategies

  • more than 10,000 hours digging through the web to make sure people can find your stuff online.



    What are we about?

    • we believe designing and developing websites can be fun

    • we believe open, consistent, and curious communication make a successful website project

    • we believe our success is defined by our employee and client successes

    • we believe business can be fun

    • we believe in growing from our mistakes and building on our successes

    • we believe technology (a.k.a geek speak) can be translated into english

    • we believe utilizing your website can be an enjoyable experience not an exercise in frustration

    The ideal monkey world

    The monkeys believe in a world where every organization has the power and confidence to share their identity online. Simply. Effectively. Thoughtfully.

    Our Plan for the Jungle

    We’re supposed to have one, right? Originally, our Mission sounded like the usual corporate discourse. It went something like,  “We want to be the best at ..." and “We promise the best service to our customers because ...."

    Now, that’s all true, but it’s not about us, it’s about you and your clients and stakeholders. Our real mission is to listen to you, to learn who you are, and where you want to go. In addition, we want to learn who your clients and stakeholder are and where they want to go. After all, our job is to help you reach your clients and stakeholders.

    We guide organizations (like yours) - passionate about connecting with their communities - on a journey.  Together, we create an online identity that reveals your organization’s core and helps you connect with your target audience.
