Maker: Jen Gubicza
Based in: Beverly, MA
Price range: $15 to $90
Website: Zooguu.com

What medium do you work in primarily?
To hear her tell it, Jen Gubicza has the best. Job. Ever. “I spend my days transforming fabric into friends,” she says.

Gubicza’s company, Zooguu, sells round plush animals and monsters in all different sizes. “Before I made stuffed animals full-time I was a graphic designer for ten-plus years at a company that focused on design for kids and families,” she says. “I created logos, web sites and toy packaging, and now I use those skills for Zooguu. My husband Brian is an illustrator, and many years ago I made a plush version of one of his sketches. After making the first one, I was hooked and needed to make more. People also wanted to buy them, so luckily that worked out in my favor.”

Gubicza works side by side with her husband, Brian, who works as an illustrator and cuts all of the fabric for Zooguu.

Fun Facts: We live near the ocean, so we like to go on relaxing walks. We also enjoy watching movies and playing LEGO video games.

We’ve Got More On the Floor!

If you’ve been into the shop lately you’ve noticed that things look different. A little fuller, a little less…couch-y. After struggling to find room for all of the awesome artists we want to feature we chanced upon some retail fixtures that worked with the store’s design. So we decided to remove the couch and the end tables that faced the cash register. While we were at it we pulled out the round mid-century Modern table that lived under the hats and hair accessories. Then we thought, what the hey, we’re opening a workshop soon so let’s get those steel work tables out now in favor of something that frames these awesome objects better.

The fixtures really transformed the center of the store and allow us to feature many more objects from many more makers. Stop in and let us know what you think!
