Every tutorial and educational piece of in-depth graphics originates from this guys stylus...it packs a punch. Rinat Almog not only makes sure the quality shows in every single item of the product but she really enjoys sketching all types of next generation concepts.

Our well-lit office is right in the center of Tel-Aviv where you can find great coffee, exciting nightlife, and an array of cultural events going on around the clock. If you are in town feel free to stop by and we can grab a plate of the locals favorite hummus. Our San Francisco office is in the center of the financial district and is the hub for our business development and marketing operations. We enjoy biking to the office and keeping a laid back vibe. Once a week we rollout to a good restaurant to appreciate the finer things in life, but typically are heads down working to grow uMake while consuming vast amounts of coffee and tea.
