Here at Good Juju Ink, we believe that every day provides us a chance to spread good juju, understanding, and love. We're not always perfect, but Good Juju Inkers love supporting one another through the highs, the lows, the pandemics, and everything in between. That's what teamwork is all about!

Juliana became "Juju" when her 1-year-old sister decided it was the only logical way to pronounce her name. Juju spent the majority of her life as a professional dancer, choreographer, and actress in Los Angeles but, in 2014, decided it was her life's calling to spread good juju and positivity through the age old tradition of illustrating greeting cards. Luckily for her, Juju's been able to draw up a storm since she was a Crayola-wielding toddler. And though she was classically trained in fine art, Juju taught herself graphic design by studying digital illustration on Pinterest every night for 6 hours for two years straight. This is a true story. And while she wasn't paid by Pinterest to tell you that story she IS accepting any payment that they or anyone else is willing to give her. Juju's favorite card is---ARE YOU KIDDING THEY'RE ALL HER FAVORITE CARDS.

Avid scuba diver, wildlife photographer, and raised alongside the oceans and mountains of the Sunshine State, Ryan is obsessed with all things nature and - thankfully for us here at Good Juju Ink - all things Excel spreadsheets. And while he's only moderately intelligent, a mere three degrees (BA, MA, MBA) from Stanford University, Ryan makes up in awkward white man dancing what he lacks in totally underperforming client management/financial strategy/inventory tracking/shipping operations/bookkeeping...etc. Basically, there's nothing Ryan doesn't do. Except cilantro. He definitely doesn't do cilantro. His favorite card is Melba the Birthday Manatee, and he's saved every single card his wife (Juju) has ever given him. Which is a lot. Cuz she makes cards. Like a LOT of cards.

Born and raised in paradise (a.k.a Hawaii), Marina helps keep the Good Juju Ink ship steady with her island vibes and "everything will be fine" attitude. Possessing a brain that is 50% creative and 50% logistics, Marina takes care of website management, operations optimization, design roadmaps, and always responding to texts with THE perfect GIF. When not thinking of new ways to spread good juju all over the world, Marina can be found hiking with her mini Goldendoodle, crafting like there's no tomorrow, or doing some combination of crying/singing/dancing at SoulCycle.
Born and raised near Grand Rapids, Michigan, Kenzie is an illustrator, designer, and self-proclaimed lover of all things warm and fuzzy. As of December 2018, she will have completed a BFA in Studio Art and Illustration from Grand Valley State University. Her hobbies include practicing yoga, searching for good gluten free food in the Midwest (does it exist?!), and proving people wrong - nicely. She likes to be considered a challenger of the status quo and an advocate for human joy via quirky, authentic illustration. Catch her on the weekend jammin' to anything from Halsey to Hozier at a cozy coffee house or walking her furry, four-legged Pomsky princess, Zeppelin. (Yes - she is absolutely a princess.)
