Juka.be VOF was founded by Karel Vanheste and Jurgen Desaever in 2016. Karel and Jurgen are graphically trained and were active in the graphic sector before 2015 with a focus on graphic design, printing and web design. Over time, the duo also started to offer e-commerce, at specific customer demand. After using a number of systems, they finally came into contact with Lightspeed.
Karel gained experience at Barco, Carrefour, McDonalds and Esko before becoming self-employed full-time with Scoop Creative Communication and Juka.be.
Jurgen has experience as an Art Director before independently starting Moof Graphic Design. In addition to being manager of Moof Graphic Design, he is also co-manager of Juka.be.
