Help people make better decisions
1999, the year of the dot com bubble. Talking sock puppets, a grocery-delivering van…need we say more? College junior Ryan Finley, working a part-time job, is asked to send a survey to customers. Easier said than done. Enter bright idea (It was the age of raging ideas, after all.). Ryan works nights and weekends – weekends and nights — to create a simple online survey tool, the first of its kind. A name. He needs a name. One that captures the innate curiosity and thirst for knowledge that makes people ask questions in the first place. Stuck, Ryan takes a walk to the park. He goes over to the children’s playground and swings on the monkey bars—reaching, hoping a name will come to mind. Swinging Surveys. Too sixties. Monkeys. Monkeys are curious. Monkeys have opposable thumbs. The rest, as they say, is survey history.
SurveyMonkey is one word, always spelled with a capital “S” and “M”.

This palette should be used sparingly, as a spark or focal point when necessary. It is not required to use all the colors in a given design. It is acceptable to use percentages of the palette colors.
