IN A NUTSHELL
Magnetism is a product development company based out of New York City. We work in a variety of media, including the web, desktop software, t-shirts, print and games. We combine cool ideas with good design and fresh technologies to nice stuff. Usually we find something that we want to exist and if nobody else has made it yet we build it ourselves.
Magnetism is the new name of our ever-evolving studio. We started back in 2002 as Monkey Business Studios, then evolved into Zap Labs. We started developing widgets for the Mac in 2005 under the name Monkey Business Labs. In 2006 we released Insanely Great Tees, our line of Apple-themed t-shirts. In 2007, we're changing our name to Magnetism (we realized we needed a name that didn't contain the word Insane or Monkeys, something a bit more respectable, but still with a kick to it). Now, we're launching a new brand, the Bureau of Communication, responsible streamlining human relations around the world. And we're just getting started, stay tuned because we've got plenty of tricks up our sleeves.
Magnetism's talents are available for hire. If you have an interesting project that seems to be a good match for our skills, we'd be interested in hearing more about it.
Widget development for Apple's Dashboard, iPhone, Konfabulator and Vista.
Over the past two years we've provided consulting services for Apple, Adobe, Orange, Westin, Red Bull, The Directors Bureau and many others. As the platforms continue to evolve, we're able to create compelling experiences for your customers.
Branding and Identity We've put together numerous logos and identities for a variety of businesses, ranging from websites to product packaging to law firms. Magnetism is a member of the Good Rocket collective. Check out the work we've done here.
Web Development All our sites are handcrafted by us. Why send your web jobs overseas when you can have it built by artisans? Our unique process of integrating design with development creates outstanding results.
Game Development Under the Monkey Business Studios brand we completed a series of interactive games in the Flash environment. Recently we have begun a series of initiatives to create unique online games and experiences. Unlike traditional video games, these new forms encourage social play and experimentation.
