We deliver

that you can
make your
very own.

Through a combination of design and science, we blend colours, shapes, materials, textures, lighting and layouts to create a vision of a space and then carefully fine-tune it till it truly is a reflection of you.

pencil & monk since 2000


Our journey began in 2007 when Mitrra Media, a design studio was established. We began with packaging and communication design and went on to work on print, fabrication, audio visual projects and even animation shorts for a wide range of leading brands and their advertising agencies.

One opportunity led to the next and we found ourselves designing print collaterals, in-theatre statics and on-site thematic promotions for Tamil feature films. In a short span, we can proudly say that we revolutionized the look and feel of Tamil feature film publicity, even venturing into the field of film direction, which turned out to be a tremendous learning experience.

In 2014, Pencil & Monk was established as a personal space design studio and our very first challenge was to design a first-of-its-kind, 20,000 sq. ft. financial technology design centre. From that point on there was no looking back. Armed with a devotion to design, strong domain expertise, dedication to our craft and the discipline to consistently deliver on time, our young team is committed to creating exciting design solutions.

At Pencil & Monk, we pour our passion and energy into every project, making them bold, innovative and completely customised from start to finish.
