Studio Neat was founded in 2010 by Tom Gerhardt and Dan Provost. We are two designers who enjoy making simple products that solve problems.
We like to think of ourselves, in Kottke parlance, as a small batch business. To this day, the two of us are the only employees, and we remain focused on making great and useful products.
A few months after the Glif began shipping, we launched our second Kickstarter project for the Cosmonaut, a wide-grip stylus for touch screens. It was met with similar enthusiasm, and it was at this point the two of us decided to quit our jobs and take Studio Neat full time. Since then we have released several iPhone apps, wrote a book, and continue to make hardware products.
We are in it for the long haul. We are not interested in venture funding or being acquired. We have been profitable since day one and we intend to keep that going. And we owe it all to our amazing customers and backers. Thanks for your continued support!
