At Robots and Pencils, we love to make things for the iPhone, Web and Desktop.
Making things is where it all begins in on our little company but not where it all ends. We also rent our brains, teach courses and angle invest. It may seem like a lot for a 2-person husband-and-wife team but we’re inspired by 37signals philosophy of doing more with less.
Robots and Pencils was founded by Michael and Camille Sikorsky. Michael’s background is in business and technology while Camille’s is in art and design. We’ve found in both marriage and business we’re each other’s natural partner. This is good news for our products and our clients.
