We inspire creativity and productivity by designing tools that adapt to fit each creative
Monogram is based in Kitchener, Canada. Our first generation hardware, Palette Gear, launched on Kickstarter in 2013. The company successfully participated in several startup programs, won startup competition grants, were funded by Extreme Venture Partners and SOSventures, and also placed 1st in the UX Design awards at IFA Berlin (2015). In 2019, we launched our second generation product under a new brand and name, Monogram. We are so proud of our past six years as Palette. In that time, we developed and refined an amazing tool that was chosen by tens of thousands of creators across the world. As Monogram, we embrace a larger vision that grows from our roots in photography and into the world of digital creation as a whole. Professionalism, authenticity, and individuality. These qualities are also what we hope creatives will achieve when using our tools—their best work, worthy of their signature. This is why we believe Monogram is the perfect name that not only reflects the past, but also captures our mission for the future. We are so excited to embark on the next chapter of our journey under this refreshed identity.
Revolutionizing the way creatives interact with their art takes passion, commitment, and a few shared values to help guide us along the way
Everyone is creative
Imagination and creativity are universal, empowering and uniting humanity. Monogram is building a future where digital experiences, individual expression, and creativity are unconstrained by technology.
Commitment to our craft is vital
As passionate creators and tool makers we love the creative process. We continuously strive to improve and we approach every design with thoughtful intent.
Original thinking is integral to creativity
We look beyond fads to understand the world from fundamentals. We combine research and thoughtful understanding to pursue radically new ideas and inventions. Our aim is to challenge existing human/computer interaction with new paradigms.
Our community gives us purpose
Our community is the hero of our story. We strive to listen to and collaborate with other creatives and original thinkers. We open the door to more creative possibilities.
Making others shine
People create because they have a story to share and we believe every story is worthy. As tool makers, our ultimate achievement is in letting that creativity within shine.
We are a small and passionate team of makers, engineers, and creatives
And we believe that the tools you use should be purpose-built for the workflow. Meet the minds behind Monogram below.
