He used to work in finance. Then one day Jan figured he’d worked way too many hours for the man and headed out for himself. He took up his hard-earned savings, set off for the Far East, filled up a container with locally handcrafted goodies, shipped it back to Europe and founded Doing Goods. It was whilst travelling through Asia for Doing Goods that Jan got the idea of making wall panels from reclaimed wood. He turned the idea into a business and called it Wonderwall Studios. And the rest is history. Jan may come across as chaotic and happy-go-lucky. But don’t be fooled, this guy knows how to run a business.
She’s Jan’s yin. Or yang. Depending on how you look at it. Aanyoung was the one biting her nails when Jan used all his money to invest in the container full of goodies but supported him nonetheless. And Jan must have done something right, because three years after he started, Aanyoung quit her job as a designer with a global fashion brand and joined the team. A good move as she and Jan form a great pair. She now runs Doing Goods and has some great plans brewing to further develop the label into something weirdly wonderful. Next to this Aanyoung guards the Wonderwall Studios brand. She is the creative genius behind Jan’s business-savvy.
