Sunmonkey Design was founded in 2000 by John Clarkson. Sunmonkey provides UX and visual design strategies and solutions. Sunmonkey is located in Northern Virginia but our reach is global: we’ve worked with teams in New Zealand, Australia, India, Malaysia, and Poland.
Sunmonkey brings a deep understanding of the latest digital technologies and design lexicons to every project, as well as extensive experience on dozens of projects of all sizes and shapes. That rich experience translates into highly accurate LOEs, painless integration with your existing processes, and solutions custom-tailored to your requirements. Our core mission is developing, documenting, and bringing to reality the best-possible user experience solution for your product or service, and ultimately, for your customers. Our toolset is deep: built on 20 years of experience in the digital industry, our results are founded on a keen intelligence, a questing curiosity that never stops asking “what if?”, and mastery of the latest software and design & product methodologies.
From market analysis and requirement gathering to prototyping and focus testing, to design and implementation and through QA, deployment and maintenance, Sunmonkey is the digital design studio who is committed to delivering the best possible solution. Frankly, we wouldn’t have it any other way and, to be honest, we’re not entirely certain we could have it any other way. We’re hardwired to give our all, always.
Sunmonkey Design’s principal and founder is John Clarkson. John graduated from the Pratt Institute of Art in 1994 with a BFA in Film and Photography. John has held key creative positions as the Director of UX for the AIM Product Design Team at AOL, and as the Creative Director for the Product group of YTL Communications in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
