We are a software company focused on educational tools that utilize art and animation. At Shmonster, we believe animation should be fun, intuitive, and accessible to everyone. This is our passion, and we want to share it with you.
Shmonster was founded by software engineer and visual effects professional Michal Finegold. Michal is a proud mom and avid artist, who wants to encourage creativity in people of all ages.
What we make
We make software that helps you easily animate anything. We’ve got some iOS apps for kids on the store already, and more are on the way. Our products are used by kids at home, at schools, and in after school programs – for both fun and education. They promote creativity, and enable integration of art and technology into a variety of academic subjects.
