One of my favorite parts of running Ugmonk is getting to collaborate with other awesome creative people. Even though I love learning new skills, I often come across people (thanks to the internet and social media) who specialize in specific crafts and are better than I’ll ever be.
One of those is Tinkering Monkey, a shop that specializes in custom wood and metal signage. I’ve been following their work for many years, and it’s been fun to watch them grow and evolve as a company. When I was chatting with Paula, one of the founders of Tinkering Monkey, I found out that she had been following Ugmonk for just as long as I had been following them. It’s always fun to make the connection.
Over the years, Tinkering Monkey has produced all sorts of cool products, but more recently they’ve homed in on amazing custom signs.
