Studio Neat was founded in 2010 by Tom Gerhardt and Dan Provost. We are two designers who enjoy making simple things and making things simple.

The Glif, our first product, represents a new way of approaching consumer products, and it wouldn't have been possible without a few thousand people who believed in us. Not too long ago the Glif was just an idea with nowhere to go. We knew it was going to be something people might like, but we needed a way to share it with the world. Typically, if you want to make a physical product (especially an electronics accessory) you have to be or sell to a large company, but we didn't like that idea. We wanted to stay close to the Glif and more importantly, to our customers. So, after much thought, we decided to put the Glif's fate into the hands of the masses and begin a Kickstarter campaign to raise the money required to make it a reality.

Kickstarter is a platform that connects creators with people who are interested in helping them out. Our contributors on Kickstarter pledged money towards our goal with no guarantee that we would ever be successful. They took a leap of faith, backed our project, and $137,417 and 5273 backers later here we are. The Glif is a full-fledged crowd-funded product.

Below are the people who made the Glif, and Studio Neat, possible. We would like to thank them for their continued support and all of the inspiration they've brought us.
