About us

One Monkey Studio! is the culmination of a 15-year partnership between two Deaf designers. While working together as teachers at RIT and co-developing an Associates’ degree program in 3D Graphics, we decided we wanted to have fun working in the industry where we spent years researching, teaching, and preparing students for employment.

We are the first Deaf-owned 3D Graphics and VFX studio in the Rochester area, and have established a studio that provides 3D Media and VFX services for the Graphic Communication and Entertainment industries.

One Monkey Studio!’s goal is to foster the growth of industry recognition of Deaf professionals in the 3D industry.  We work with a diverse range of clients, and team-up with Deaf-owned businesses to satisfy our clients’ needs.
